This second volume in the Aging Studies in Europe series focuses on
questions concerning the ways in which actors and socialites perform aging
on the stage of consumerist culture. How do celebrities, whose star
personae are ultimately connected with the prime of their lives, cope with
the aging process? Which public practices invite subtle adjustment of age
scripts that focus on the decline of physical strength and attractiveness
as the years pass?
