Reviews

"Passage of the Social Security Act of 1935 and subsequent expansions of it have shaped the lives of older Americans and their families for over half a century... Critical gerontologists built on this common-sense knowledge to show that Social Security represented more than just an insurance program for citizens. It also changed the matrix of economic, political and social relations in ways that represented a qualitative shift in the structure and meaning of old age... Green's analysis of discourse within gerontology is an important first step in the examination of our discipline." --Debra Street, Contemporary Sociology
