Critical Gerontology: Perspectives From Political And Moral Economy (Policy, Politics, Health, And Medicine Series (Unnumbered).)
Publish Date: 1998-01-01
This refreshing book uses broad political and moral economy perspectives to explore the intersections of race, class, gender and aging and how these help determine the experience of aging and growing old. The twenty chapter volume includes new contributions by many of the top names in critical gerontology. Both political and economic factors, and those shared norms about fairness and obligation that help shape our aging policies, are examined in relation to a wide range of contemporary issues in gerontology.
