📙 Aging, Society, and the Life Course: by Leslie A. Morgan PhD, Suzanne R. Kunkel PhD — epub download


As the aging population grows ever larger it is increasingly important to understand how adults age and what can be done to provide up-to-date care to ensure their well-being as an integral part of society. Leslie Morgan and Suzanne Kunkel understand that this phenomenon is about much more than just the physical or biological aspects of growing older and have put together a comprehensive text on the impact of society and sociology on the aging and aging process. This text will be used to explore the diversity of the aging population and crack the major stereotypes surrounding the elderly, learn about aging through all the layers of social context from family life to politics and economics, and come to see how aging is more than just an individual process, it’s a process that informs the direction of our society.
