This volume and its companion, The new dynamics of ageing volume 1, provide comprehensive multi-disciplinary overviews of the very latest research on ageing. Together they report the outcomes of the most concerted investigation ever undertaken into both the influence shaping the changing nature of ageing and its consequences for individuals and society.

This book concentrates on four major themes: autonomy and independence in later life, biology and ageing, food and nutrition and representation of old age. Each chapter provides a state of the art topic summary as well as reporting the essential research findings from New Dynamics of Ageing research projects. There is a strong emphasis on the practical implications of ageing and how evidence-based policies, practices and new products can produce individual and societal benefits.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book brings together some of the major findings of one of the most important recent research programmes on ageing. It is highly recommended." Anthea Tinker, King's College London "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." Baroness Greengross OBE, Former Chair of the Advisory Group of New Dynamics of Ageing "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." Thomas Scharf, Professor of Social Gerontology, Newcastle University
