Chapter 2 locates the study of older people’s interest organisations within the sociological, political science and social gerontology literature. The chapter seeks to bridge the divide between these three interrelated yet traditionally distinct disciplines. In doing so it elucidates issues of key salience to the theoretical study of older people interest organisations and discusses the changing meaning of collective identity and identity politics as applied to older people.
