Summary

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 Agecasts 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.
