An Interdisciplinary Perspective

Edited by John C. Cavanaugh and Susan Krauss Whitbourne

Gerontology: An Interdisciplinary Perspective presents an overview of gerontology appropriate for beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate students. The text includes seminal chapters on theory, methodology, physiological processes, health, culture, dying and bereavement, cognitive processes and intellectual abilities, personality, assessment, clinical issues and competency, caregiving, and public policy issues. The chapters have been authored by major researchers and practitioners in the field. Each chapter includes review questions and list of additional reference sources. While there are undergraduate texts in the areas of adult development and aging, this is the first parallel text at the graduate level.
