MEDIA REVIEWS

"Diversity within a group in mental and behavioral functions increases with age. Aging as a phenomenon is further differentiated in that it affects and is affected by a variety of established disciplines. . . . In Growing Old in America (second edition) Hess manages gerontological fairness while still capturing the dynamics of the aging experiences. . . . Each section holds distinguished scholarship. . . . The great functional variety of aging experiences is amply documented here. . . . Hess argues for 'doing something about it, ' and substantiates the potency and value of a social gerontology."

--Edward F. Ansello, Contemporary Sociology
