Designed to complement any of the standard textbooks in social gerontology, this work is a set of 19 chapters in 12 categories that can be read in conjunction with chapters in a text. A number of chapters present the findings from recently completed research, while others explore certain topics in more detail than the textbooks do. The categories and chapters were chosen because they present a number of the most important areas in the field and in some cases because they address issues that have not received deserved attention. Topics include the demography, psychology, politics, and economics of aging in addition to issues of gender, caregiving, health, ethnicity, retirement, and deviant behavior.
