Contributions by an impressive group of over 200 scholars from academia, medicine, and health-related agencies have been compiled for this first encyclopedia devoted to the topic of aging. By minimizing specialized terminology, the editors have succeeded in providing, for the educated reader and nonspecialist, a compendium of nearly 500 terms and concepts related to the aging process.
A significant portion of the encyclopedia consists of over 2000 references to sources cited in the text. A comprehensive index, attractive format, and a few appropriate illustrations and tables add to the overall excellence and usefulness of the work. This will prove an authoritative reference source for all libraries serving students or professionals in the many disciplines that bear upon gerontology.
