Additional Book Details
The first comprehensive exploration on the subject of older men, Older Men′s Lives offers a multidisciplinary portrait of men and their concerns in later life. Using both a life-course and gendered perspective, the contributors to this collection of original articles point out that the image and self-image of men are continuously reconstructed over the life cycle. They examine older men′s position in society and the changes wrought in their status and roles over time. Their relationship with their spouses, children, grandchildren, and friends are also explored, as are policy implications of a gendered, life-cycle view of masculinity.
This volume also discusses faith development in older men, masculinity identity from work to retirement, older men′s sexuality, and older men′s friendship patterns.
Older Men′s Lives will be of interest to professionals and students interested in gender, men′s studies, gerontology, and sociology.
"This book begins to remedy the lack of information and provides data and research on aging men. . . .The strength of this book is the specificity of its focus. By focusing solely on male concerns the book is able to identify issues in the male aging process and discuss them on their own terms rather than simply as a contrast to females."
