Social Class in Later Life: Power, Identity and Lifestyle by Marvin Formosa

Social Class in Later Life collects the latest research on class, culture, and aging—exploring the relationship between them and offering a critical guide to the ways in which age and class relations intersect with each other. Bringing together a range of international scholars, Marvin Formosa and Paul Higgs develop a sophisticated, analytical, and empirical understanding of late-life class dynamics. It will be of interest to students and researchers examining the implications of global aging as well as scholars concerned with the development of a more critical and engaged gerontology.
