Class Dynamics in Later Life

Older Persons, Class Identity, and Class Action in Malta

By Marvin Formosa

Class Dynamics in Later Life examines the extent that older persons, despite their estrangement from the productive process, are still dynamically engaged in class structuring and action. It argues that class remains a key differentiating factor in older people's lives. Contrary to conventional assumptions which presuppose that class mobility cannot occur unless retirees re-enter the labour market, the book argues that class formation is truly alive and kicking in later life.
