This document is a Tribute to Professor Michael Oliver. It has been co-authored by some of his many friends, disabled activists, Centre for Disability Studies (Leeds) members and colleagues from overseas. We do hope that this Tribute will be understood in the spirit that it was intended. As a series of reflections on, as Tony Baldwinson says, “a life well done”. Such lives are for celebrating and that was our goal.
There are three versions of the same document, one is standard pdf, the others are a pdf/a (with coloured backgrounds) and a pdf/a with black and white text and backgrounds (no ‘fancy fonts’)
