The Social Policy of Old Age
edited by Miriam Bernard and Judith Phillips

'As a resource for researchers and students in a number of disciplines, and at different levels, the book is a gold mine. It not only has scope and vision, but the list of authors reads like a hall of fame in the worlds of gerontology and the social policy of old age.'
Health Service Journal

'A fascinating compendium, jam-packed with information, analysis and questioning on a wide variety of aspects of ageing ... an indispensable work.'
Health and Social Care in the Community

'Excellent collection.'
Ageing and Society

'Invaluable to undergraduate and post-graduate specialist and non-specialist students ... at a different level, the book is an extremely valuable resource for all social policy academics, social workers and health and social care practitioners.'
Social Policy

The Social Policy of Old Age critically reviews social policy developments as they have affected older people since the creation of the welfare state. It covers traditional policy areas and emerging issues, and it offers perspectives on how policy might develop to meet more successfully the demands of an empowered older population.
