A Fresh Map of Life: The Emergence of the Third Age
Harvard University Press, 1991 - 213 pagina's
The prospect of spending long years in reasonable health and scarcely impaired activity, far beyond the convenient landmark of retirement, has already become the norm--without anybody really noticing it, let alone appreciating the implications. In this highly original and perhaps controversial book, Peter Laslett urges us to plan ahead for personal enrichment--before retirement and before the children leave home--before we reach the Third Age.
