With a growing elderly population in the UK, questions such as what constitutes retirement, how it is perceived, and how it is funded, are of crucial importance to all. This text describes how those in retirement today support themselves financially, and how retirement and pensions are viewed as cultural traits of our society. It also examines the form and value of pensions today, and looks ahead to what might happen in the future. The data used is almost all from the 1990s.

"As we would expect of the author, the book is well researched, attractively written and successfully describes what we have come to call the 'emergence of retirement'. It is a book worth having on your shelves." - The Journal of the British Association for Service to the Elderly
