What is elder abuse? How can it be explained and understood? Why now? What can be done about it?

Elder abuse is now recognized as a serious social problem on both sides of the Atlantic and Australia. Our understanding and responses to it will have profound implications for the quality of older people's lives and their place in society.

Elder Abuse in Perspective examines how the mistreatment of older people is defined, theorized and researched. It places the problem in its social and historical context, giving special attention to forms of abuse within families, communities, and institutions like hospitals and residential homes. The book looks at issues around training and elder abuse, and explores the most effective methods of intervention and prevention.

Elder Abuse in Perspective challenges many commonly held assumptions and provides new insight into elder abuse and neglect. It is perhaps the first book in recent years to provide a critical and reflective analysis of this growing social issue. It is an essential addition to the library of practitioners, researchers and students of old age.

Review:
"I liked the way the authors linked key issues in working with elder abuse to major issues like social policy...This book takes us forward and I hope other authors will learn from what Biggs et al have done. They have summarised critically, analysed and challenged ideas, but have not been boring, repetitious and regurgitated what we already know." - Community Care "...manages to review the subject to date in a way that is useful to practitioners, students and interested social observers alike." - Health Matters "This is a thought-provoking work and it manages to strike a sensible balance between theory and pragmatism. It should appeal to many relevant professions." - Age and Ageing "...a truly well-written, informative and stimulating book which provides an excellent framework for considering the problem of elder abuse within a broad perspective...This reviewer highly recommends this book to all those interested in better understanding the problem of elder abuse." - Ageing and Society "Those unfamiliar with elder abuse will find this book covers the ground very thoroughly, while readers with previous knowledge could get new insights in this complex area." - Professional Social Work
