This resource will increase your awareness about the many facets of ageism and provide you with a wealth of concepts, theories, and facts about ageism.

This important resource exposes the many faces of dehumanization through the elder neglect and prejudice that results from today's worldwide youth-oriented culture.

The book is a valuable guide for anyone working with older people and for older people themselves.

The Encyclopedia of Ageism promotes a future where the human rights of older persons are preserved and aging is considered a positive stage in the cycle of life. With this book, you will find strategies for reducing ageism, changing perceptions, and enhancing the quality of life for senior citizens andƒsomedayƒyourself.
