Description - Contexts of Ageing by Chris Gilleard

We live in ageing societies. Age preoccupies governments as much as individuals. Most people reaching retirement no longer face a future of impoverishment and destitution. A new affluence has spread across society and across the life course. Instead of being concerned with the negative connotations of old age, this book acknowledges that for many people looking forward to retirement, later life has changed for the better. With this positive outcome for older people have come policy and social dilemmas for governments and individuals alike.
