This multidisciplinary guide to the literature and research about the physical and psychological aspects of successful, normal, and productive aging is designed for students, teachers, and practitioners who deal with the elderly. The introduction discusses perceptions of aging well. The 500 entries are arranged alphabetically by author under nine topics: physical aging, psychological aging, social aging, family, living arrangements, work and economics, education and leisure, politics, and religion. An appendix covers sources dealing with the measurement of aging well. The careful author and subject indexes make this annotated bibliography easy-to-use for researchers in the fields of history, economics, psychology, sociology, law, theology, demography, public health, political science, home economics, family studies, women's studies, pharmacy, and health administration, among others.

?A valuable addition to the series, this compilation of research articles, policy publications, and practice concepts that focus on positive adaptations of aging' has been created to counter the notion that aging is a negative process always connected to problems and impairment.?-Choice ?The well-qualified authors of this skillfully annotated biblography admit that thay are not always in complete agreement as to what "aging well" really means. At any rate, they have used this concept as the criterion for selecting entries from literature and research about normal aging-the positive aspects of growing old successfully as opposed to the more usual negative viewpoint of a period of problems, deteriorating health, and loss. ... Researchers and specialists from many disciplines dealing with aging and the elderly should find this volume from the series on gerontology of significant interest.?-ARBA "A valuable addition to the series, this compilation of research articles, policy publications, and practice concepts that focus on positive adaptations of aging' has been created to counter the notion that aging is a negative process always connected to problems and impairment."-Choice "The well-qualified authors of this skillfully annotated biblography admit that thay are not always in complete agreement as to what "aging well" really means.
