This companion to The New Dynamics of Ageing provides a comprehensive multi-disciplinary overview of the latest research on aging. Together, both volumes report the outcomes of one of the most thorough investigations ever undertaken into the changing nature of aging and its consequences for individuals and society. Volume Two concentrates on four major themes: autonomy and independence in later life; biology and aging; food and nutrition; and representations of old age. Each chapter provides the essential research findings with a strong emphasis on the practical implications of aging and how evidence-based policies, practice, and new products can produce individual and societal benefits.
Review Quotes
Anthea Tinker, King’s College London
“This book brings together some of the major findings of one of the most important recent research programs on ageing. It is highly recommended.”
Baroness Greengross OBE, former chair of the Advisory Group of New Dynamics of Ageing
“I welcome the emphasis given to the important theme of maintaining the dignity and respect older people deserve, if we are to fully draw on the knowledge they build up throughout their lives.”
Thomas Scharf, Newcastle University
“Anyone with an interest in ageing will find this book engaging and insightful. Contributors break new ground in offering a more rounded and dynamic view of later life that fundamentally challenges traditional ways of thinking about ageing.”
