How does the implementation of national policies and programs affect the daily life of those growing old in Spanish Harlem?

Growing Old in El Barrio

In Growing Old in El Barrio , Judith Freidenberg addresses these questions by examining the life-course and daily experiences of the elderly residents of El Barrio. Freidenberg further links policy issues to social issues critical to the daily lives of this population. Combining extensive fieldwork interviews with historical and demographic population data, Growing Old in El Barrio paints an ethnographic picture of aging in Spanish Harlem and illustrates the emergence of New York as a city divided by ethnicity and class.

Freidenberg is especially successful in having the voices of her informants not only lay out the social construction of immigrant experience but using these materials to analyze the important policy implications of her work.

Particularly valuable is the way in which Freidenberg humanizes her subjects who, as elderly and Latino, are often totally ignored or reduced to a mere statistic. Growing Old in El Barrio is an illuminating and important book. Freidenberg provides an excellent balance between quantitative and qualitative research, enriching both with a project that deepens our understanding of the problems of aging migrants. Its exceptional clarity recommends it for both students and policy makers. Freidenberg further links policy issues -- such as persistent poverty in urban enclaves and the provision of health and social services to an aging population -- to social issues critical to the daily lives of this population.

In this book, the author examines the life-course and daily experiences of elderly residents of El Barrio. This title also focuses on the economy of immigrant neighbourhoods and the personal experiences of Latino's ageing in Spanish Harlem. The Great Hall relates some of the most seminal events of the epic, culminating in the famous game of dice between the Pandavas and the Kauravas.

Getting old should not mean losing control

The Pandavas, happily settled in Indraprastha, enjoy one glorious success after another. Yudhishthira, after erecting the most magnificent hall on earth, decides to perform the Royal Consecration Sacrifice, which will raise his status to that of the world's greatest sovereign.
