Aging: Concepts and Controversies Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Presenting current research in an innovative format, Aging: Concepts and Controversies encourages students to become involved and take an informed stand on the major aging issues that we face as a society. Leading author and active expert in gerontology Rick Moody provides thorough explanation of the issues in the Concepts sections and current research in the Controversy sections, demonstrating the close link between concepts and controversies in these broad areas of aging: health care, socioeconomic trends, and the life course.

Book News Annotation:

Moody (academic affairs, AARP) and Sasser (human sciences, Marylhurst U.) present a textbook that describes major aging issues in society to students who will be working in gerontology or as professional service providers. The text focuses on aging as a process and its controversies and questions, which are organized around basic concepts such as health care, social and economic outlooks, and retirement. This edition adds four new readings, a new controversy topic on marketing to an aging population, and new features that explore common stereotypes about aging. Figures and graphics have been updated and augmented, and each chapter of controversies addresses issues in different countries. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
