Review:

"Erdman Palmore has provided a portrait of older people in America that is both scientifically impeccable and extremely readable ... Palmore's approach is forthright in calling attention to ways in which individuals, social groups, and social institutions undervalue older people." -- M. Powell Lawton, PhD, Philadelphia Geriatrics Center
