intersections of Ageing, Gender, Sexualities: Multidisciplinary International Perspectives (Hardcover)
With an increasingly diverse aging population, the need to understand how social divisions affect later life has never been greater. This edited collection examines aging, gender, and sexualities from geographically diverse perspectives and looks at how these factors combine with other social divisions to affect experiences of aging. The editors draw on both theory and empirical data to provide a cogent mix of conceptual knowledge and real world illustrations.
