With the world's population getting increasingly older, there has never been a more pressing need for the study of old age and ageing. An Introduction to Gerontology provides a wide-ranging introduction to this important topic. By assuming no prior expert knowledge and avoiding jargon, this book will guide students through all the main subjects in gerontology, covering both traditional areas, such as biological and social ageing, and more contemporary areas, such as technology, the arts and sexuality. An Introduction to Gerontology is written by a team of international authors with multidisciplinary backgrounds who draw evidence from a variety of different perspectives and traditions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a highly readable introduction to the exciting challenges posed by the study of ageing, written by an impressive international group of experts. Its broad ranging character, engaging with topics such as retirement, sexuality, technology and cross-cultural differences, will make it attractive to a wide range of readership.' Peter G. Coleman, Professor of Psychogerontology, University of Southampton
'This text presents a well balanced view of the subject area - making it truly a useful introductory text. I found myself updated and re-educated in many areas. Significantly, a world view to aging and old age is presented. The lexicon of aging, aging services, and elder care is appropriately updated. Everyone interested in gerontology should read this book.' Nicholas G. Castle, Professor, Department of Health Policy & Management, University of Pittsburgh
'This is indeed a good introduction to the many trends seen in a diverse and aging population.' The Psychologist
