Older Men's Lives

Edited by:

Volume: 6
Other Titles in:
Men's Studies

June 1994 | 276 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In this multidisciplinary portrait of men and their concerns in later life, the contributors use both a life course and gendered perspective to point out that the image and self-image of men are continually reconstructed throughout the life cycle. Issues examined include: the position of older men in society and the changes wrought in their status and roles over time; men's relationships to spouse, children, grandchildren and friends; and policy implications.
