Re-Engagement in Later Life
Re-Employment and Remarriage
by
Ruth Harriet Jacobs and Barbara H. Vinick
 
In Re-Engagement in Later Life: Re-Employment and Re­marriage, we are pleased to bring to public awareness two subjects that are overdue as both topics of academic research and areas of practical information: re-employment and remar­riage of older people. Until now, these topics have barely been explored.




Part I, the study of re-employment in later life, was con­ceived and carried out by Ruth Harriet Jacobs with support from the National Institute of Mental Health.

Part II, the study of remarriage, was conceived and conducted by Barbara Vinick and supervised by Ruth Harriet Jacobs.

Because of the obvious linkages, both theoretical and substantive, in the issues concerning re-employment and re­marriage in later life, we felt it was useful to present the report of these studies in one volume. Although retirement issues re­cently have become a political issue of national interest, there has been little concern with employment possibilities for peo­ple considered beyond traditional working age. Remarriage among older people, with the exception of one previous study by Walter C. McKain, has been glossed over, possibly as being trivial or not worthy of serious attention.
