Exploring Aging Masculinities
This book explores the lived, embodied experiences of aging men as a counterpoint to the weary stereotypes often imposed on them. Conventionally, in Western cultures, they are seen as inevitably in decline. The book challenges these distorted images through a detailed analysis of aging men's life stories. David Jackson is an independent researcher and a member of the Nottingham Pensioners' Action Group. Over the last fifteen years he has focused on aging men's issues, and has set up aging men's groups and, with others, a memory work group. He has also written Unmasking Masculinity: A Critical Autobiography and Challenging Macho Values: Practical Ways of Working with Adolescent Boys (with Jonathan Salisbury).
