This up-to-date study reflects the breadth of research into gerontology and analyzes the major themes and issues in the area of ageing and social policy in both an Australian context and from an international comparative perspective.

Topics discussed include unemployment, education, and housing for the aged. Added to this is the contemporary influence of multiculturalism and the challenge it poses to policies and programmes that must cater for a growing diversity in the ageing population.

A special focus is given to the situation of women and Aboriginal Australians and the specific structural disadvantages they face. This should be useful reading for students and policy-makers in sociology, social and public policy, gerontology, and public health.
