Inhaltsangabe: Old age is a part of the lifecycle about which there are numerous myths and stereotypes. To present an overstatement of commonly held beliefs, the old are portrayed as dependent individuals, characterized by a lack of social autonomy, unloved and neglected by both their immediate family and friends; and posing a threat to the living standards of younger age groups by being a 'burden' that consumes without producing. Older people are perceived as a single homogeneous group, and the experiment of ageing characterized as being the same for all individuals, irrespective of the diversity of their circumstances before the onset of old age. In this book, detailed statistical material is used to portray the circum stances of older people in modern society in an attempt to evaluate the appropriateness (or otherwise) of the major stereotypes of later life. This volume does not address ageing from a psychological or micro-social per spective. In particular, we do not explore major issues relating to old age. Rather we feel that, from the extensive collection of surveys concerned with the elderly, we can provide a context within which individual eld erly people can be studied from more anthropological or biographical perspectives.
Inhaltsangabe: Old age is part of the life cycle about which there are numberous myths and stereotypes. The appropriateness or otherwise of these myths is evaluated by Christina Victor using detailed statistical material from a biographical and anthropological perspective. This edition of this review of the present and future needs of the elderly provides an up-to-date overview of the position of older people in late-20th century Britain. It examines their social and economic circumstances and the main policy issues including pensions, housing, health and social care. Data from Britain and other countries completes the revision of this standard work for social and health workers, sociologists and social policy analysts at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. This book should serve as a useful introduction to the characteristics of older people in a modern industrial society. It should be of interest to Project 2000 (adult branch) and MSc students of social gerontology and social policy.
