Social Welfare, Aging and Social Theory provides a significant critique of dominant theories in social gerontology. It covers a wide range of theoretical perspectives whilst offering a coherent perspective based around Foucauldian ideas. The links drawn between theory and practice are especially welcome and should ensure a wide readership. Social Welfare, Aging, and Social Theory is a book that lives up to its ambitious title. Now, more than ever, we need a book that can help us connect the dots and make sense of our lives in an aging society. This book delivers on that promise. -- Harry R. Moody, Director of Academic Affairs, AARP This important book locates aging at the heart of social theory and challenges many taken-for-granted assumptions in gerontology as well as popular culture. It provides a powerful antidote to dominant biomedical and behavioral science models of aging as an inevitable decline and should be read by all students of gerontology and social theory.
