From the Publisher"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
