Summary
"Understanding Old Age takes a critical look at the vision of ageing, which often portrays older people as an ever-growing burden that will bring down the health service, wreck the pension system and overwhelm families and social services. Unpacking the ageist and sexist assumptions underlying mainstream demography and economics, the author presents a more balanced view of the ageing of world populations." "The subject of ageing is examined from the perspectives of politics, economics, migration and health and social care. The author provides a clear understanding of the issues of ageing, and encourages the reader to think critically about the 'problems' of ageing societies." "This is an essential text for students of social gerontology, as well as an invaluable resource for students of nursing and social work, social policy, development studies and social geography."--Jacket
