Rezensionen
"Ayalon and Tesch-Römer's edited volume takes a social science approach to meticulously examine ageism from various points of view. ... The goals for the book include uncovering the origins and manifestations of ageism, to better understand how often and in what situations ageism occurs, and reviewing research designs and interventions that may be effective in countering ageism in a variety of settings and sectors." (Kate de Medeiros, The Gerontologist, April 13, 2019)
