Summary: Jill Quadagno's groundbreaking text is the first to take a life course perspective, which examines the relationship between the quality of one's life in old age and one¿s experiences, earlier choices, opportunities, and constraints. (Note especially Chapter 8, "Adult Development and Life Course Transitions".) The text gives students a broad background for understanding current policy debates through a distinctive chapter entitled "Old Age and th ...show moree Welfare State," and through boxed essays in every chapter called "An Issue for Public Policy." The text integrates coverage of topics and issues pertaining to race, class, gender, and culture.

  • New pedagogy includes "Looking Ahead" preview questions, "Looking Back" summary questions, discussion questions at the ends of boxes, and "Thinking About Aging" critical thinking questions.
  • New "Exploring the Internet" sections at the end of each chapter direct students to relevant websites and ask them to answer a series of questions about the material they find online.
  • New Online Learning Center is a text-specific website that includes quizzes, web links, interactive exercises, URLs for Census 2000 updates, and additional resources.
