📒Biology Of Aging ✍ Alvaro Macieira-Coelho
📝Biology of Aging Book Synopsis : The survival of the human species has improved significantly in modern times. During the last century, the mean survival of human populations in developed countries has increased more than during the preceding 5000 years. This improvement in survival was accompanied by an increase in the number of active years. In other words, the increase in mean life span was accompanied by an increase in health span. This is now accentuated by progress in medicine reducing the impact of physiologic events such as menopause and of patho logical processes such as atherosclerosis. Up to now,research on aging, whether theoretical or experimental, has not contributed to improvement in human survival. Actually, there is a striking contrast between these significant modifications in survival and the present knowledge of the mechanisms of human aging. Revealed by this state of affairs are the profound disagreements between gerontologists in regard to the way oflooking at the aging process. The definition of aging itself is difficult to begin with because of the variability of how it occurs in different organisms.
📒The Cultural Context Of Aging ✍ Jay Sokolovsky
📝The Cultural Context of Aging Book Synopsis : The new edition of Sokolovsky's unique text explores a wide variety of cultural issues worldwide that impact aging issues, from perception and valuation of the elderly to homelessness, caregiving, assisted suicide, psychological support, and responses to those with dementia. This third edition includes twenty-five new chapters as well as special student resources, data from the most recent studies, a guide to Internet sites, and a bibliography of related readings. Especially useful for students across majors from anthropology and psychology to social work, nursing, and medicine, the new edition fully updates and expands on the award-winning second edition, about which the journal Contemporary Gerontology wrote: "I marvel at the extent to which Sokolovsky has made The Cultural Context of Aging user friendly."

📒Handbook Of Theories Of Aging Third Edition ✍ Dr. Vern L. Bengtson, PhD
📝Handbook of Theories of Aging Third Edition Book Synopsis : This state-of-the-art handbook will keep researchers and practitioners in gerontology abreast of the newest theories and models of aging. With virtually all new contributors and content, this edition contains 35 chapters by the most highly respected luminaries in the field. It addresses theories and concepts built on cumulative knowledge in four disciplinary areas- biology, psychology, social sciences, and policy and practice- as well as landmark advances in trans-disciplinary science. With its explicit focus on theory, the handbook is unique in providing essential knowledge about primary explanations for aging, spanning from cells to societies. The chapters in the third edition place a strong emphasis on the future of theory development, assessing the current state of theories and providing a roadmap for how theory can shape research, and vice versa, in years to come. Many chapters also address connections between theories and policy or practice. Each set of authors has been asked to consider how theories in their area address matters of diversity and inequalities in aging, and how theories might be revised or tested with these matters in mind. The third edition also contains a new section, "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants," which includes personal essays by senior gerontologists who share their perspectives on the history of ideas in their fields, and on their experiences with the process and prospects of developing good theory. Hallmarks of the Third Edition: Highlights important gains in trans-disciplinary theories of aging Emphasizes the future of theory development Provides insights on theory development from living legends in gerontology Examines what human diversity and inequality mean for aging theories Emphasizes interconnections between theory, research, intervention, and policy Underscores international issues with greater representation of international authors Includes section introductions by the editors and associate editors that summarize theoretical developments Key Features: Highlights variability and diversity in aging processes, from the cellular level of biological aging to the societal level of public policy Provides insights on theory development from living legends in gerontology Offers intergenerational, interdisciplinary, and international perspectives Disseminates a forward-thinking, future-oriented focus in theory development
