Aging and The Life Course: An Introduction to Social Gerontology, 2/e
Written by one of the leading authorities in the field, Aging and the Life
Course, 2/e offers a comprehensive and contemporary view of the
sociology of aging. This 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. This book highlights public policy issues related to aging and integrates coverage of topics pertaining to race, class, gender, and culture.
The text-specific Online Learning Center supports and extends the content
of the text by offering students and professors a variety of resources and
activities, including chapter quizzes, web links, interactive exercises,
vocabulary-enhancing crossword puzzles and PowerPoint slides.
Instructors can incorporate any of the material from the Online Learning
Center into a course website using PageOut, a template-driven website
development program created by McGraw-Hill.
