Core text for use in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses such as Families and Aging, Sociology of Aging, and Introduction to Gerontology in departments of family studies, sociology, social work, and gerontology. Families and Aging examines how the changing lifestyles of Americans will play into aging well. It will explore the life course transitions that occur as individuals and families age within the current U.S. context. The text is written from a sociological perspective, but it is interdisciplinary and can be used by many fields such as gerontology, social work, human development and family studies.
