Críticas:

"An extremely valuable contribution to the sociological literature." Kate Davidson, Sociology "The most cogent attempt so far to force a sea-change in the way we think about old age." Simon Biggs, Ageing and Society "A provocative analysis which should stimulate fresh thinking and new research in the field of ageing." Chris Phillipson, Keele University "Contexts of Ageing is an important profound, contribution to the literature. Like a fine wine, the reader savours the careful use of language and fresh insights brought forward by Gilleard and Higgs. This book is to be read carefully, for the authors compel their readers to expand their minds and challenge conventional wisdom about the past, present, and future of the ageing society. Contexts of Ageing is a must read." Scott A. Bass, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Reseña del editor:

We live in ageing societies. Age preoccupies governments as much as individuals. Most people reaching retirement no longer face a future of impoverishment and destitution. A new affluence has spread across society and across the life course. Instead of being concerned with the negative connotations of old age, this book acknowledges that for many people looking forward to retirement, later life has changed for the better. With this positive outcome for older people have come policy and social dilemmas for governments and individuals alike. 

Drawing on a wide range of sources, this book examines the history of welfare states, the emergence of consumer society, the growth of individualization and the reconstitution of identity and community. The book argues that the third age, its origins, and its contradictions are central to understanding the future of our society. 

Contexts of Ageing is certain to stimulate academic debate, but it is also appropriate for adoption on a range of courses. The book is written in a lively and accessible way, giving it appeal to upper-level undergraduates and postgraduates taking courses on ageing in sociology, social policy and health studies courses. Students and professionals working in the areas of nursing, health care and social gerontology will also find the book of interest.
