This new collection of essays examines the lives of older women in Britain from 1500 to the present and gives a fascinating insight into the lives of elderly women from a range of different social strata and different times. This latest book in the " Women and Men in History" series will break down some widely held assumptions revealing attitudes towards the aging process and challenging common beliefs and stereotypes.
