Class Dynamics in Later Life examines the extent that older persons,
despite their estrangement from the productive process, are still
dynamically engaged in class structuring and action. It argues that class
remains a key differentiating factor in older people’s lives. Contrary to
conventional assumptions which presuppose that class mobility cannot occur
unless retirees re-enter the labour market, Formosa argues that class
formation is truly alive and kicking in later life.
