9780745629506: Contexts of Ageing: Class, Cohort and Community
Review:

"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

From the Publisher:

We live in aging societies. Age preoccupies governments as much as individuals. A new affluence has spread across society and across the life course. For many people looking forward to retirement, later life has changed for the better. But 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 analyzes the social nature of later life in the context of the history of welfare states, the emergence of consumer society and the growth of individualism.The book argues that the third age, its origins, identity and contradictions are central to understanding the future of our society. "Contexts of Ageing" is certain to stimulate academic debate. 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 in sociology, social policy and health studies. Students and professionals working in the areas of nursing, health care and social gerontology will also find this book of interest.
