Older People, Community and Place in Rural Britain
The first project-based book in the New Dynamics of Ageing series offers a unique interdisciplinary perspective on older people’s role as assets in rural civic society. The authors examine the ways in which rural elders are connected to community, the contributions they make and the groups to which they belong.
