Abstract [en]

This book contains original chapters from eminent writers in gender and ageing, addressing newly emergent areas. Early work on gender and ageing was dominated by a focus on older women. This volume breaks with that tradition by emphasizing changing gender roles and relationships, gender identities and by examining masculinities in later life. A key theme running through the book is the need to reconceptualize partnership status, in order to understand the implications for women and men of widowhood, divorce and new forms of relationships, such as Living Apart Together (LAT-relationships). Another is the influence of socioeconomic circumstances on how ageing is experienced and transitions negotiated.
