Leading Edges: Recent Research on Psychosocial Aging. Review Essays Prepared for the White House Conference on Aging.
Hess, Beth B., Ed.; Bond, Kathleen, Ed.
The objectives of this book, a collection of papers about recent research on psychosocial aging, are to broaden scientific understanding of the psychosocial components of the aging process and the place of older people in society, and to call attention to a number of issues in aging research. The papers emphasize that aging does not occur in a vacuum, but in a changing social and family environment. The book begins with a historic overview and considers population and family trends. Other topics focus on the economic aspects of aging, work and retirement, minority aging, stress and health, learning and memory, and postponing the onset of disability. (JAC)
