In The Measure of Our Age, elder justice expert and MacArthur "genius" grant recipient, M.T. Connolly investigates the systems we count on to protect us as we age.
Weaving first-person accounts, her own experience, and investigative reporting, she exposes a reality that has long been hidden and sometimes actively covered up. But her investigation also reveals reasons for hope within everyone's grasp.
Connolly's strategies and action plans for navigating the many challenges of aging will appeal to a wide range of readers—adult children caring for aging parents; policymakers trying to do the right thing; and, should we be so lucky as to live to old age, all of us. This book transforms how we think about aging.
