Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aging and Later Life examines the range of issues raised by aging in contemporary society. The collection is unique in combining academic and practitioner analyses with personal accounts. By taking a multidisciplinary approach that includes literary, historical, sociological, policy, psychological, and clinical perspectives, this lively and informative collection features essays by major authors and includes discussions of cultural aspects of self-image and identity, current concerns relating to health and well-being, and the reality of power and control in the care of older people. It also explores concepts and values that shape our understanding of aging, issues of policy and politics, and historical perspectives on aging and the possibilities for the future. Aging and Later Life is an invaluable sourcebook for students, practitioners, and researchers in social gerontology, sociology, psychology, health, and social work. It is a real pleasure to recommend this very pleasing collection, which is a welcome addition to any gerontology library, personal or public. --Baseline
