Aging and The Life Course
Aging and The Life Course: An Introduction to Social Gerontology, 2/e
Jill Quadagno, Florida State University

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.
