    As the elderly make up a growing proportion of our population, the questions of old age become pressing: does age confer insight and authority, is it a time of rest after the struggles of life, and how do we distribute resources fairly between the young and the old? This eloquent, accessible and thoughtful book considers how writers and philosophers from Plato to Philip Roth have regarded old age, and how it can reflect a well led life in a just society.
