Introduction to Aging


The second edition of this engaging text reflects a welcome new paradigm for aging-that of aging as a positive stage of life. Written for undergraduate and masters-level students, it provides an interdisciplinary perspective on the wide variety of subject areas within gerontology, and combines research with engrossing narratives, new trends, and controversial topics. Substantially updated, the second edition features integrated content on the diversity of the aging population. State-of-the-art information includes new science on the biology of aging; chronic conditions; integrated care; changing roles for older adults; new demographics; and critical policy issues.

The second edition examines career opportunities in gerontology and includes Practical Applications and Activities for Students, new scenarios, and many more charts and graphs. The book also includes PowerPoint slides, a test bank and an instructor's manual.
