Contemporary Issues in Gerontology: Promoting Positive Ageing

By V. Minichiello; I. Coulson | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The inspiration for writing this edited collection has come from talking with older persons about their lives and learning that there is nothing to fear from growing old. In fact, we have been enriched by the many positive stories and experiences that accompany the journey of people as they grow old, despite the many challenges they face.

The book attempts to value growing old and to support older people in their campaign to combat ageism in our society. We also hope that the younger reader will rethink his or her misconceptions about older people and respect the human right of older persons to experience the same rich opportunities for social, cultural and productive roles and not be subject to selective discrimination because they are 'older'.

This book reflects a collaboration between many people. First, we are indebted to the many older persons we spoke to, and particularly our senior postgraduate research students at the University of New England in Armidale, Australia. Second, we are grateful to Jeanette Tan and Gloria Davidson for assisting us with typesetting the manuscript, chasing reference details, and providing excellent support. Third, the contributors have been most patient with us. We want to thank them for participating in this project. And finally we want to acknowledge the support we have received from Emma Cant and Jeanmarie Morosin at Allen & Unwin.

Special acknowledgment for the assistance received by the authors for particular chapters is noted. Richard Rohrshiem and Glenn Harvey provided research assistance and compiled some of the data presented in Chapter 4.

Professor Victor Marshall provided copies of some of the material used in Chapter 11 and made comments on an earlier version of this chapter. Dr John C. Thomas also made many helpful comments on an earlier draft of this chapter.
