This volume represents the first truly multidisciplinary examination of aging. Its astonishing breadth takes in everything from basic cell biology to social participation in later life to representations of aging in the arts and literature. Drawing on the pioneering New Dynamics of Ageing Programme, the UK’s largest research effort in the field of aging, it explores how aging is changing and the ways that it can be altered to improve both the lives of the aging population and their place in—and contribution to—contemporary society.
