Critical Questions for Ageing Societies

Gemma Carney, Paul Nash

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This textbook is written by two award winning social gerontology professors located on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. The premise for the book is to set out to answer the question most often asked by students in our classes in the UK and US. By choosing to base our book on questions put to us by our students we have made some progress in shedding new light on areas of research and study which are often ignored in textbooks about ageing and older people. We are particularly pleased that this book includes in-depth discussions of diversity, masculinity and cultural gerontology. However, we are confident that this decision gives what follows greater relevance and timeliness. Most importantly, you can rest assured that answering our students’ questions has produced a book that is both an authoritative source and an interesting read.
