Evidence of widening inequalities for the aging has led to strong concerns about the many ways older adults experience social exclusion. Against the backdrop of a massive older demographic, From Exclusion to Inclusion in Old Age casts a welcome light on the patterns and processes that either include senior citizens in or exclude them from wider society. Taking a broad international perspective, the contributors to this volume examine a host of central topics important to understanding the lives of seniors, from globalization, age discrimination, and human rights to intergenerational relationships, poverty, and migration. Essential reading for anyone interested in aging issues, this book is key to understanding the interplay between institutions, policies, and the people they affect.

About the Author:

Thomas Scharf is professor of social gerontology and director of the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology at National University of Ireland and author or editor of several books, including Critical Perspectives on Ageing Societies, also published by the Policy Press. 

Review:

"This is an important book for students, policy makers and practitioners in the ageing and social policy fields because it provides essential theoretical and empirical insights into a critical issue for the well-being of older people. It is highly recommended."--Alan Walker, The University of Sheffield (01/17/2012)

"With contributions by scholars at the cutting edges of their fields, this interdisciplinary collection of reports from around the world will be crucial to the study of the global political economy of aging."--Toni Calasanti, Virginia Tech (01/23/2012)

Book Description Policy Press, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Evidence of widening inequalities in later life raises concerns about the ways in which older adults might experience forms of social exclusion. Such concerns are evident in all societies as they seek to come to terms with the unprecedented ageing of their populations. Taking a broad international perspective, this highly topical book casts light on patterns and processes that either place groups of older adults at risk of exclusion or are conducive to their inclusion. Leading international experts challenge traditional understandings of exclusion in relation to ageing in From Exclusion to Inclusion in Old Age. They also present new evidence of the interplay between social institutions, policy processes, personal resources and the contexts within which ageing individuals live to show how this shapes inclusion or exclusion in later life. Dealing with topics such as globalisation, age discrimination and human rights, intergenerational relationships, poverty, and migration, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in ageing issues.
