9780205831951: Issues in Aging

Opportunities and Optimism in Aging

 

Issues in Aging, 3rd edition takes an optimistic view of aging and human potential in later life.

 

This book presents the most up-to-date facts on aging today, the issues raised by these facts, and the societal and individual responses that will create a successful old age for us all. 

 

Mark Novak presents the full picture of aging- exhibiting both the problems and the opportunities that accompany older age. The text illustrates how generations are dependent on one another and how social conditions affect both the individual and social institutions.
