Aging bodies: images and everyday experience

Western thought traditionally divides the human being into a body-mind dualism; the first examines the physical body and the second focuses upon psychological and social aspects of aging. Christopher A. Faircloth's edited volume of original pieces attempts to bridge this rift: reinserting the physical back into gerontology's study of aging. Faircloth organizes this text around everyday experience and the social and personal impact of its imagery, while concentrating on three areas of substantive concern: medicalization, gender/sexuality, and the body as consumer.
