SIAECM Scaffale: Janet Wilmoth, PhD; Kenneth Ferraro, PhD « Gerontology »Gerontology - Perspectives and Issues
Third Edition 

What is Gerontology? 
How Does Aging Affect the Mind and the Body? 
How Does Social Context Influence Aging and Life Course Development? 
What are the Needs and Interests of an Older Population?


These questions are sparking the most important research in gerontology, and this third edition of the perennial text brings the research and its resulting theories from across the various disciplines into one broad overview of gerontology.

This interdisciplinary approach is key to developing a strong "gerontological imagination," a necessary base for the study of gerontology.

Use this volume to discover the cellular realities of aging alongside the social forces that play a role in developing Alzheimer's. Study the effects of nutrition and exercise in older lives and learn how the demographics of aging affect them. By combining knowledge from different disciplines, Wilmoth and Ferraro have created a comprehensive picture of gerontology today that will enhance any course instruction and provide a new window into the future of the discipline.
