A Fresh Map of Life

The Emergence of the Third Age

Peter Laslett

ISBN 9780674323278

Publication date: 04/01/1991

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.
