Ageing, Meaning and Social Structure advances the critical discourse on gerontology, offering new understandings of key social and ethical dilemmas facing aging societies. Connecting approaches that have been relatively isolated from one another, it integrates two major streams of thought within critical gerontology: analyses of structural issues in the context of political economy and humanist perspectives on issues of existential meaning, providing indispensable reading for scholars, students, policy makers, and practitioners in gerontology and humanism studies.

About the Author:

Jan Baars is professor of gerontology at the University of Humanistic Studies.

Review:

"A much-needed integration of two relatively new but flourishing areas of ageing studies, which have developed separately up to now. I gained fresh insights from each and every chapter." (Peter G. Coleman, University of Southampton)
