Owing to the silence regarding ageing in the region, the study paves the way for further research on the subject especially that it involves a rapidly growing number of people. The book has included an array of novels that represent ageing in the process of transformation and change, fluctuating between active and passive, urban and rural, modern and traditional. Changing historical, demographic, and socio-economic factors are producing varied constructions of agedness that challenge a single paradigm.Given the wars and the wide-ranging political and social problems in the region, one expects the ageing process in the Arab world to take different directions from in the West as local and regional challenges necessitate different strategies and different forms of survival.
