Synopsis

This controversial book argues that concepts such as `successful' and `active' ageing are potentially dangerous paradigms that reflect and exacerbate inequalities in older populations. The author presents a new theory to make sense of the popularity of these concepts, providing essential reading for anyone seeking to make sense of social constructions of ageing in contemporary societies.
