Description - Handbook of Communication and Aging Research by Jon F. Nussbaum

This work shows that aging is not only an individual process but an interactive one. The study of communication can lead to an understanding of what it means to grow old. We may age physiologically and chronologically, but our social aging - how we behave as social actors toward others, and even how we align ourselves with or come to understand the signs of difference or change as we age - are phenomena achieved primarily through communication experiences. Many of the chapters work to deny earlier images of aging as involving normative decrement to provide a picture of aging as a process of development involving positive choices and providing new opportunities. A theme that recurs in many of the chapters is that of the heterogeneity of the group of people who are variously categorized as older, aged, elderly, or over 65.
