Title:
New Perspectives on China and Aging
Authors:
Cook, Ian; Powell, Jason
Abstract:
The first part of the book is entitled ‘Family, Transitions and Aging’ and addresses rapid social and economic changes in China through a kaleidoscope of differential perspectives that focus on how family continues to be an important reference point for the past, present and future institution in the care of older people. The second part of the book focuses on the tangible social forces associated with managing old age: ‘Welfare, Consumption and Aging’. This section is important in locating the structures and agents of power that are relevant to maintaining trust and social relations between older people, the Chinese State and its dualism of state welfare and consumption of welfare.
