China, Aging & Theory Paperback / softback
Edited by Jason L. Powell
This book provides a theoretical critique and analysis of the development and consolidation of power in China as it applies to ageing.
In seeking to deal with this increased proportion of elderly people, Chinese state policy seeks to introduce ways of reducing the fiscal burden of ageing upon the state, and indeed upon those many families who have been markedly affected by the modernisation process.
This book, however, fundamentally questions the assumption that populational policies in the Chinese state are unbiased in their social practices with older people.
The book explores new topics of ageing in China grounded in and drawing from developments in social theory, (ie), Foucauldian theory and postmodernism.
