“Now in its second edition, Later Life: The Realities of Aging focuses on the adjustment patterns, changing lifestyles, and societal issues confronting older Americans.  With a readable, straightforward style, Harold G. Cox presents all the basic topics and theoretical perspectives in the gerontology field.  Although written from a social science perspective, the book reflects the interdisciplinary nature of gerontology by including material from psychology, sociology, social work, anthropology, the biological sciences, medicine, and psychiatry.  Among its new features, this thoroughly revised edition contains a new chapter (15) on religion and aging, as well as a timely section on adult abuse.  New references to the most recent literature published in the field are included in each chapter, and the author furnishes considerable material on the medical and developmental model.  Key words and suggested readings are supplied at the end of each chapter.”
