Of the research conducted on, about, and for women, little has focused on gender among elderly people. Is there a quality of life difference between elderly women and men? Does ageism affect older women more than their male counterparts? How can elderly women empower themselves to change inadequate living conditions? Considering these and other questions, Gender and Later Life examines how gender and class influence the well-being of people in later life and considers if these factors are more relevant than chronological age. The authors use a political economy perspective to integrate research on aging and gender and to provide a better understanding of gender differences in later life. Essential reading for those with interests in women's studies, social gerontology, medical sociology, and social policy. "The use of the political economic framework provides an enlightening, provocative foundation for understanding the issues of gender and aging. The insights provided into the life span dynamics of later life dependency are convincingly presented. The realistic conclusion derived from reading this very important book is that we can do little to respond to the issues of gender and aging until we have resolved gender, class, and racial inequities occurring across the life span. However, until such resolution occurs, we must continue to seek ways to respond to the material, health, and caring resource limitations of aging women. . . . The conclusions of the book provide important insights that need to be understood by professionals and lay people of all backgrounds. Although academic in nature, the insights presented have value for all those concerned about quality of life for women across the life span. The book is highly recommended for use in graduate courses related to public policy, gender, or aging studies." --Journal of Women and Aging "This is a complex but concise and well-organized book, an important contribution to the development of productive links between sociology and gerontology." --Sociology "This book has, with facts and figures, shaken me up and opened my eyes so I could see the connections in the jigsaw of oppression. Highly readable, clear and challenging. I recommend it as essential reading for all those in the struggle for equality of opportunity for all." --Radical Statistics Newsletter "The book has many virtues. . . . I hope that [Gender and Later Life] will be widely read by those who are already involved in social and health services, as well as by those who are on the threshold of their working lives and want to contribute in their careers to measures designed to produce greater social equity." --Journal of the British Society of Gerontology "Arber and Ginn have produced an extremely valuable contribution to the literature on social gerontology. They have outlined a powerful new synthesis, a feminist political economy perspective on old age that will advance our understanding of life for a significant section of our population." --Journal of Biosocial Science
