"This whole book is characterised by its rigour and nuance in every comment, especially regarding consumers and spectators ... . Representing Ageing will have at least two different audiences: obviously scholars and doctorate students working on age relations and gerontology, but also academics in sociology, anthropology, media and Cultural Studies who are looking for interesting aspects related to the social representation of ageing. Clearly, Virpi Ylanne is to be commended for this excellent collection of essays." (Yves Laberge, The European Legacy, Vol. 23 (2), February, 2018)

"[A]n enjoyable read, providing a thoughtful mix of chapters that significantly highlight the interplay between media representations of ageing and the selfidentification of older individuals. Taken together, the collection showcases the research of key scholars in this area, and makes a strong case for considering the importance of both images and identity to contemporary processes of ageing." - Ageing and Society
