Loneliness in Later Lifeby H. Gibson, Hamilton B. Gibson, Peter Laslett
Loneliness in Later Life concerns the personal and social changes associated with ageing, a topic which is becoming increasingly popular as the number of those in the Third Age themselves reaches unprecedented levels. It analyses the nature of loneliness, clearly distinguishing it from the experience of solitary living, which in its turn is explored, and valued. Through an examination of material drawn from literature and moderen research, including the author's own experience, the book arrives at the happy conclusion that older people are not in general, lonelier than when younger.
