Growing Up and Growing Old: Ageing and Dependency in the Life Course

Capa
SAGE Publications, 17 de mai. de 1993 - 208 páginas
Ranging across disciplinary boundaries, this book analyzes metaphors of dependency in differing contexts - the body, the family, work and leisure. Combining a robustly critical analysis with breadth of interdisciplinary sweep, Growing Up and Growing Old challenges the stigmatizing role that stereotypes can play in the lives of particular groups of people.
