Aging and the Life Course: An Introduction to Social Gerontology by Jill S. Quadagno

Jill Quadagnos groundbreaking text is the first to take a life course perspective, which examines the relationship between the quality of ones life in old age and ones experiences, earlier choices, opportunities, and constraints. (Note especially Chapter 8, Adult Development and Life Course Transitions.) The text gives students a broad background for understanding current policy debates through a distinctive chapter entitled Old Age and the Welfare State, and through boxed essays in every chapter called An Issue for Public Policy. The text integrates coverage of topics and issues pertaining to race, class, gender, and culture.
