Acerca de


Haim Hazan, a specialist on old age in anthropology, focuses on the reality of the experience of old age as opposed to the stereotyped image. He examines the subject from a social constructionist perspective, drawing on ethnographic accounts to produce a sophisticated and highly original book.


"Hazan's critical analysis is raises issues for social science theoriists and researchers studying old age to ponder." Anne Foner, American Journal of Sociology

"The alternative model that Hazan proposes has aspects that could make important contributions to our knowledge about aging, and as Hazan emphasizes, about the ways we do, or do not, acquire knowledge about any elements of human experience that combine biological, cultural, and personal aspects. The two most creative themes introduced in Hazan's alternative model are rooted in his own research: the perception of time by older persons, and their creation of new cultural frameworks in age-homogenous settings. The examples taken from the author's work in these areas are a tempting invitation to further pursuit of a knowledge of age that Hazan proposes should encompass both major facets of the aging experience...." Jennie Keith, American Scientist
