Gerontology is a multidisciplinary field, and this bibliography provides a multidisciplinary perspective on research on aging. The volume begins with an introductory chapter that desribes the range of interests to be found in gerontology, discusses the core concepts, and directs the reader to appropriate journals and handbooks. The bibliographic chapters that follow provide information on the most important works related to particular areas of gerontological research. Included are bibliographies on caregiving and health care, rituals related to death and dying, sleep disorders, Alzheimer's Disease, coronary disease, and the use of growth hormone in aging research. The chapters reflect social, anthropological, biological, ethical, and medical views. Each chapter begins with a brief essay on the latest trends in the field, and each entry includes a citation and a descriptive and evaluative annotation. Detailed indexes add to the usefulness of the volume.
