It brings together some of the best international scholars working on issues of how people and places influence experiences of ageing. Rural Ageing examines the conflicting stereotypes of rural communities as either idyllic and supportive, or isolated and bereft of services. Throughout the book, the question is asked, Good places for whom? This is the only up-to-date book examining how rural contexts influence the lives of older people in rural communities. It is rich in profiles and is grounded in the narratives of older adults, providing theoretical, empirical, and practical examples of growing old in rural communities, which have never before been presented.
