Aging, Social Inequality, and Public Policy by Fred C. Pampel

Book Description

Fred C Pampel describes how age combines with other components of inequality by comparing the influence of group membership on social inequality before and after the life course transition to old age. He looks at the differences in public policy and how age inequality - more than the other sources of inequality - relates closely to government policies and studies other societies in which both age group differences and overall inequality differ from those in the United States. Pampel makes comparison of the United States with other nations a central component of the book, providing greater understanding of the larger forces that shape old age.
