Reviews

"Almost all public discussion about race and ethnicity is expressed in terms of generalizations, sometimes taking account of history, almost never taking account of time lived by real human beings. This book is one if the first to take account of time, aging, and the life-course. An important contribution to our understanding of issues which will not soon go away." - Harry R. Moody, Retired Vice President, AARP, and Visiting Professor, Fielding Graduate University, USA; Author of AGING: Concepts and Controversies (2011)

"Race and the Lifecourse is a groundbreaking work that examines how race shapes important phases in human development. This edited collection shows that youth, adulthood and old age, like other aspects of life, are marked by racial and ethnic difference." Antonia Randolph, Professor of Sociology, Social Work, and Anthropology, Christopher Newport University, USA
