Aging by Leslie A. Morgan

Book Description

The work provides an introduction to both social gerontology and sociology of aging studies. It offers a coherent narrative that is organized around broad sociological themes. What integrates this text overall is the discussion of how we socially construct aging, how different societies at different times construct aging, and what those changes say about our society. It contains lively, specualtive essays covering non-traditional topics and demonstrates the social process of aging from a completely different perspective.
