ASIAGE

My aging process and Agism

ASIAGE reflects the human fear of turning old and why in our 60's and 70's, society and culture make us feel old and unaccomplished. If we adopt the attitude of external societies toward aging, we will find the miracle of life at its conclusion with fortunate people, who at their end of life are filled with beauty, wisdom, and purpose.

Synopsis

ASIAGE is an introspective view of ageism. The book covers the social and cultural problems encountered by victims of ageism in work and social environments. ASIAGE discusses the physical and psychological burdens of an individual, who, recognizing her own aging, is intimidated by it. All in all, ASIAGE is about the plight of a human being that due to ageism is continuously ignored, criticized, and subjected to daily maltreatment and abuse while interacting with others.
First, ASIAGE explains ageism and why it happens. By examining the manner in which ageism is exposed in various settings, the individual learns that ageism is a fact of life—it happens, but it is WRONG. Second, ASIAGE proposes ways in which victims of ageism can cope with this vicious contemporary social problem, which Don Juan[1] refers to as , “. . . the cruelest of our natural enemies.” Subsequently, the individual can recover from physical and emotional damage caused by ageism. Finally, after we learn that ageism is wrong and that we can fight it, the rest is in our hands. We can work if it is in our heart to do what we love to do. Forget retiring because others say you should retire. Work for the heck of it! Work because you love to work—and do not let ageism get the better of you. Let us fight ageism until we end it!

As the author of ASIAGE, I explain what ageism is, how it is exhibited, and why it is wrong. I have been working on occupational age discrimination for over 25 years. As an international lawyer, I have written extensively on age and gender-based discrimination. I was selected by the US Department of Labor under the Labor Side Agreement of NAFTA administered by the National Administrative Office (US NAO) to examine and report for the NAO’s second submission alleging non-compliance by Mexico on labor discrimination on the issue of pregnancy-based exclusion in Mexico’s private and public sectors.

Sales arguments

  • Because ASIAGE brings out the perpetuating problems of ageism, the book can be recommended for sociology, pre law, and legal studies at colleges and universities throughout Canada, US, Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Market ASIAGE book through the Inter-American Development Bank and book store, as a must read to end the rampant and inherent problem of ageism in our culture and society.
  • Market ASIAGE through EQUINET (European Network of Equality Bodies) and seek endorsement as well. Market ASIAGE through internationally-recognized NGOs combating ageism and seek endorsement as well.
  • Market ASIAGE through Specialists in International Law on Latin America and the Caribbean, S.C., LLC and similar international law office platforms that combat ageism. Have potential influencers throughout Canada, US and Mexico.
  • Seek to get a forward of ASIAGE written by a leading expert in ageism, such as from Erdman Ballagh Palmore, an American gerontologist and Professor Emeritus of Medical Sociology at Duke University, author of Facts on Aging Quiz, and numerous articles on aging; or by Gullette, Margaret Morganroth. Ending Ageism, Or How Not to Shoot Old People. United States, Rutgers University Press, 2017, as well as from other authors, who have cited my work in ageism and similar.

Audience

Because this book raises awareness of the social stigma of ageism, it is written for all readers, but, in particular, it is written for those 50 and above, who are oblivious to its impact.

Advance praise
