This book maps the often taken-for-granted aspects of what it means to age in an ageist society, applying interdisciplinary perspectives about everyday life to vital issues in the lives of older people. Part of Bristol University Press’s Ageing in a Global Context series, this edited volume address a range of topics, including household possessions, public and private spaces, older drivers, media representations, dementia care, health-tracking, dress, and sexuality. This focus on micro-sociological conditions allows us to rethink key questions which have shaped debates in the social aspects of ageing. International contributions from the UK, US, Sweden and Canada provide a critical guide to inform thinking and planning our ageing futures.
