Description:

This new and advanced textbook provides an integrated and thorough representation of what we know from the current research. Whereas books on families and aging have traditionally focused on ties to a spouse and to children and grandchildren, this Second Edition of Family Ties & Aging is more extensive and more reflective of contemporary society. This text includes groups and relationships that typically receive short shrift, exploring such neglected populations as single, divorced, and childless older people and their family relationships, as well as sibling relationships among the elderly, live-in partnerships not formalized by marriage, and the kinds of family ties forged by gay and lesbian persons over the life course. This Second Edition weaves the vast range of information we now have about the many facets of family relationships and aging into a critical, comprehensive, and integrated whole. New to the Second Edition Updated chapters include research and theoretical developments in the field since publication of the First Edition Media coverage of related issues will be part of this updated edition New topics are covered,such as: Intimate relationships in later life; Gay and lesbian partnerships; Sibling ties; Elder neglect/abuse; and Theoretical developments The entire book has been edited to further enhance its readability Intended Audience : Family Ties & Aging, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses such as Families & Aging, Sociology of Aging, or Introduction to Gerontology in Family Studies, Sociology, or Gerontology departments.

Ingrid Arnet Connidis is Professor of Sociology at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada. In 2001, she spent a stimulating term at Oregon State University researching family gerontology as the recipient of the Petersen Visiting Scholar Award. Over the years she has explored. Her work has been published in a range of journals including Journal of Marriage and Family, Journal of Gerontology: Social Sciences, Research on Aging, Journal of Family Studies, Journal of Aging Studies, and the Canadian Journal on Aging. She has also contributed chapters to a range of books related to aging, family relations, and feminist scholarship. In 2004, she and Julie McMullin were awarded the Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award from the Gerontological Society of America for their work on ambivalence ("Sociological Ambivalence and Family Ties: A Critical Perspective." Journal of Marriage and Family, 2002:64:3:558-567). In her quantitative and qualitative research she has explored various facets of aging and family relationships including work-family balance, sibling ties, family ties across generations, the family ties of gay and lesbian adults, and step relationships.
