" The leaders in the extraordinary revolution of which editor Philip Silverman writes are the elderly, the "modern pioneers" in our changed and changing society.
This volume focuses on the nature and problems of old age and provides a comprehensive summary of current gerontological research.
The process of aging is approached from a "life course perspective" - a theoretical framework which treats aging as a complex phenomenon, determined by a variety of dimensions. "

" Each chapter emphasizes one or more of three major dimensions of aging: biological, psychological, and sociocultural.
This volume is ambitious in its combination of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives, without sacrificing scholarly rigor and detailed research.
Written for students and professionals in the gerontological field, The Elderly as Modern Pioneers itself represents a pioneering work of scholarship. "
