Title: Class dynamics in later life : older persons, class identity and class action
Authors: Formosa, Marvin
Keywords: Older people -- Malta
Social classes
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Lit Verlag
Abstract: Class Dynamics in Later Life examines the extent that older persons, despite their estrangement from the productive process, are still dynamically engaged in class structuring and action. It argues that class remains a key differentiating factor in older people’s lives. Contrary to conventional assumptions which presuppose that class mobility cannot occur unless retirees re-enter the labour market, Formosa argues that class formation is truly alive and kicking in later life.
