The Short Guide to Aging and Gerontology provides a concise and authoritative overview of key issues related to age, including how old age has been viewed historically and across cultures, what we know about health and function in later life, and how older age is financed throughout the world, among other questions. Also including current research on policy and practice and detailed suggestions for further reading, it is an important resource both for anyone new to gerontology as well as established scholars and practitioners in the field.
