Acerca de


"This is a scholarly study that gives us insight into a population from which we rarely hear. Rosenfeld helps us to understand the influences of historical circumstances and how they influence social relations, sexuality, and the creation of a personal identity...This book is highly recommended." Sex Roles "This is a book that should be read by everyone wanting to do gerontological social work." The Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare "Rosenfeld's book is an important contribution to life course social science and adds to our understanding of aging among lesbians and gay men." --The American Journal of Sociology " important study." --Lambda Book Report "The Changing of the Guard will make an important contribution to our understanding of aging and lesbian and gay life. I don't know of any other work that looks at lesbian/gay elders from a theoretically informed standpoint. Rosenfeld adds significantly to our thinking about identity and sexuality." --Kristin Esterberg, University of Massachusetts Lowell "This book is an insightful analysis of the life narratives of lesbians and gay men born before 1930. It uncovers and theorizes the connection between identifications made in youth and middle age, social change, and self constructions in later life. Rosenfeld deftly bridges the gap between historical and interactionist approaches to identity and identity politics, proving that the intersection between personal decisions and historical circumstances informs social relations and moral evaluations across the life course. Theoretically sophisticated--and a darned good read--The Changing of the Guard will be recognized as a significant addition to the growing literature on the complexities of identity and social life in old age." --Jaber F. Gubrium, University of Missouri, Columbia "Rosenfeld's book is an important contribution to life course social science and adds to our understanding of aging among lesbians and gay men." --The American Journal of Sociology " important study." --Lambda Book Report
