Muhammad Hossain

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Based on fieldwork conducted by the author among the Bangladeshis in England, this book aims to examine what socio-economic, health and psychological problems of older Bangladeshi experience in later life and what members of the Bangladeshi community perceive to be the reasons for these difficulties. It also aims at finding out the extent to which gerontological theories, that highlight the problems associated with later life, reflect the experiences of older people across ethnic and cultural differences in the United Kingdom. The research has been carried out in the London Borough of Croydon where a small number of Bangladeshi communities lived. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with older people from the mixer of men and women so as to answer the research question i.e. the problems and the effects of ageing process far from home where they made their later life abode. In a qualitative semi-structured interview study in the London Borough of Croydon from the Bangladeshi communities were asked about their problems of ageing and how they feel about living and growing old in a western country. The author has tried to represent their work and their opinions accurately.
