This book applies theoretical insights from the sociology of everyday life to specific issues related to aging in contemporary society. Drawing on ethnographic, technological, media, and cultural research, the contributors argue that the making of everyday life is crucial to observe and understand if we are going to advocate successfully for inclusive and caring communities. The book is part of the Ageing in a Global Context series, which features international contributions from the United Kingdom, United States, Sweden, Canada, and other nations.

Sara Arber, University of Surrey
“This pathbreaking book changes our understandings of contemporary ageing by providing innovative, theoretically-rich analyses of everyday life, meanings, and material culture.”
