Title:
Theorizing in Social Gerontology: The Raison D'etre
Authors:
Powell, Jason; Hendricks, Joe
Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to contextualise the need for a social theory of ageing. For a long time, social gerontology has been accused of being “data rich but theory poor”. The paper reviews this and maps out the importance of research themes of social theory and sets the scene for the articles that have used social theory in an innovative way to shed light on international experiences of ageing.
