Summary: In writing this first edition text, Jill Quadagno's goal was to provide a comprehensive and contemporary view of the sociology of aging. She achieved her objective in the following ways: (1) hers is the first social gerontology text to take a life course approach, which stipulates that the quality of one's life in old age is the product of earlier choices, opportunities, and constraints; (2) her book highlights current public policy issues pertaining to aging; and (3 ...show more) her book integrates coverage of topics and issues pertaining to race, class, and gender.

  • Provides a contemporary approach to the study of aging, emphasizing the life course perspective (Note especially Chapter 8--''Adult Development and Life Course Transitions'')
  • Gives students a broad background for understanding current policy debates through a distinctive chapter entitled ''Old Age and the Welfare State'' and in boxed essays found in every chapter.
  • Emphasizes diversity in aging by providing integrated coverage of race, class, and gender issues and by discussing old age in a broad range of cultures.
  • Distinctive chapter, ''Caring for the Frail Elderly'' examines family and institutional care options.
  • Boxed essays in each chapter entitled, ''In Their Own Words'' add human interest through vivid first-person accounts of various aspects of the aging experience.
