This text is not simply a summary of research literature. Instead, it focuses on controversies and questions, rather than on assimilating facts or coming up with a single "correct" view about aging and older people. The unique text-reader format encourages readers to first grasp basic ideas about aging in three domains: aging over the life course, health and health care, and socioeconomic aspects of aging. Each "Concepts" section is followed by a series of edited readings, offering different perspectives from experts and specialists on that subject.
