Life-course implications of US public policies, edited by Janet M. Wilmoth and Andrew S. London

"Public policies are often narrowly focused and targeted legislative or regulatory guidelines. In Current Debates in Aging and the Life Course: Public Policy, the authors encourage others to systematically consider the influence of policies and programs on lives, aging, and the life course, and how the consequences may vary by race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, and social class. The volume aims to foster an appreciation of how policy influences connect and condition the life course. Essays examine issues relating to cumulative Dis/Advantage, crime and nutrition, amongst other issues, and demonstrate how the principles of the life-course perspective and cumulative inequality theory can be used to re-shape contemporary public policy debates. Current Debates in Aging and the Life Course will be a great aid to students of sociology, social work, and, and public policy, as well as policy makers, think tanks, and lobbyists, who are concerned with age-based policy"--, Provided by publisher
