About this title:

Synopsis:

Welcome to the world′s most unique and dynamic textbook on aging. Widely praised and adopted, Harry "Rick" Moody has again presented the key concepts and controversies in an engaging and accessible fashion, supported with carefully chosen adapted readings, resulting in the most captivating introduction to gerontology available today.

From the opening chapter, the author encourages students to see aging not as a fixed period of life but as a process beginning at birth and extending over the entire life course. The pedagogical design of this book focuses on controversies and questions rather than on assimilating facts or coming up with a single "correct" view about aging or older people. The readings are selected to highlight ongoing debates in the field and to stimulate students to think more deeply about what is at stake in the issues presented.

Moody is the author of over 100 scholarly articles, as well as a number of books including: Abundance of Life: Human Development Policies for an Aging Society (Columbia University Press, 1988) and Ethics in an Aging Society (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1992). His most recent book, The Five Stages of the Soul, was published by Doubleday Anchor Books and has been translated into seven languages worldwide.  He is the editor of a newsletter, "Human Values in Aging," reaching 10,000 subscribers each month.
