The Long History of Old Age, Hardback Book

The Long History of Old Age Hardback

Edited by Pat Thane


"The Long History of Old Age" is a scrupulously researched and startlingly original illustrated social history that traces the way Western society has treated old people throughout history, from antiquity to the present day.

This is an enthralling human story of great contemporary resonance, in which patient historical detective work demolishes both our own prejudices and the propaganda of the past, and coaxes new insights from a variety of sources.
