Ageing, Dementia and the Social Mind

Edited by Paul Higgs and Chris Gilleard

A groundbreaking exploration of the sociology of dementia --- with contributions from distinguished international scholars and practitioners. Organised around the four themes of personhood, care, social representations and social differentiation, Ageing, Dementia and the Social Mind provides a critical look at how modern concepts and assumptions regarding dementia can benefit from sociology and other disciplines. This collection addresses the gaps in our sociological knowledge of dementia and provides a forum for the development of new themes and perspectives within the health social sciences. This important work breaks new ground In giving specific attention to the social and cultural dimensions of responses to dementia

A valuable and long overdue addition to the literature on medical sociology, Ageing, Dementia and the Social Mind will undoubtedly have broad international appeal to academics, researchers and higher-level students of gerontology, health, nursing and social work, as well as those employed within social and health care
