9781903855591: Age discrimination (Theory into Practice)

Some forms of discrimination, such as racism and sexism, have received widespread and in-depth attention, but age discrimination still has a relatively low profile. This important book raises awareness of the extent, nature and significance of the disadvantage such discrimination places older and younger people under. Well written and well informed, Age Discrimination is an excellent foundation for understanding age discrimination, how powerful a process it is and, most importantly, the serious consequences for those it affects. It explains how it comes about, how it can be avoided and how it can be challenged. It also shows how this form of discrimination goes largely unnoticed and has become 'part of the wallpaper', even to the extent that those who are discriminated against are either unaware of the discrimination, or recognise it but feel themselves undeserving of anything better.
