City of Green Benches by Maria D. Vesperi

Book Description

In "City of Green Benches", Vesperi combines the ear of a journalist, recording scores of conversations with elderly residents, with the eye of an anthropologist, trying to understand how people's self-esteem and self-perception are transformed in the process of social change. In this contribution to gerontology theory, Vesperi examines the cultural construction of old age in American society and its impact on the self-concept of the aged.
