About this title


Yallop looks at how people in eighteenth-century England understood and dealt with growing older. Though no word for ‘aging’ existed at this time, a person’s age was a significant aspect of their identity.


'Historians of the body and medicine will welcome this significant contribution to the history of ageing.' Social History of Medicine 'This book should appeal to students and others interested in history and ageing, and would be a fine supplement to other texts approaching the same subject matter from different perspectives.' Ageing & Society 'An important new study that significantly advances our understanding of the history of aging. Successfully incorporating cultural history methodologies with those of the social history of medicine, Yallop brings together a wide range of sources to paint a nuanced portrait of the eighteenth century's views of the aging process.' Susannah Ottaway, Carleton College
