Über diesen Titel
This authoritative reference work is the pioneering interdisciplinary resource in gerontology and geriatrics. It contains explanations of hundreds of terms, concepts, and issues related to the lives of older adults, as well as the growing range of programs and services for the elderly provided by the professions, communities, and governmental agencies. The entries were written by invited prominent scholars in biology, medicine, nursing, psychology, psychiatry, sociology, and social services. The style of presentation makes this volume readily accessible to students and professionals from many fields, and is particularly valuable to information-seeking nonspecialists.From Library Journal:
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. Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, Ind.
