Do you sometimes think ahead and try to prepare for old age, or are you afraid of getting old and thus do not want to contemplate this stage of life? If you belong to the first group of people, Elderly Population in Modern Russia: Between Work, Education and Health might be of interest to you. Otherwise, rather than reading this book, you might be better off looking for the next antiaging remedy. There is considerable academic and practical demand for research on aging driven not only by questions of continued physical functioning in older age but also by concerns about sustainable sociocultural development of the aging society in its entirety and the aging individual in it. This book provides a sociological approach to rethinking the meaning of old age and different manifestations of older people’s relationship with society, such as age policy, old-age social exclusion, ageist attitudes, accumulated inequality during the life course, and so on.
