Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A gerontology history focusing on the elderly in Connecticut from 1790 to 1830 demonstrating that growing old during the preindustrial age was characterized more by uncertainty than the stereotypical image of the elderly being supported by communal and familial ties. Scott's dissertation investigates the spiritual, social and economic experiences of the region's elderly members finding both increased responsibilities in terms of the church and marginalized community and economic standing. Includes tables, graphs, and appendices of public records. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
