"An American anthropologist, Jennie Keith . . . went to live for twelve months in a French housing scheme for retired people and as a participant observer conducted a study in community creation. This book, in which she describes and analyses her experience, is a delight. It is scholarly and draws on a wide range of studies of similar residences and other collectives; it is also vivid, funny, sad and entertaining."--Marie Borland, British Journal of Social WorkKeith, Jennie is the author of 'Old People, New Lives Community Creation in a Retirement Residence' with ISBN 9780226429656 and ISBN 0226429652.
