Product description


"Hoggart's accounts are rich in detail and in personal leaps of imagination, doubts and tremors." "a reflective book, with a conversational style, which made me think about the 'discourse of empathy' and the potential contribution of cultural studies to enlarge gerontology's disciplinary foundations." Ageing and Society Vol.27-2007, Cambridge University Press--Sanford Lakoff

About the Author
