Since the first edition of Encyclopedia of Gerontology, the research literature on aging continues to expand rapidly, reflecting both the rising interest of the scientific community and also the needs of a growing older population. In 1900, for example, persons over 65 years of age were the smallest portion of developed societies. Today that same demographic group is emerging as the largest.
Aging is a complex process of change involving influences of a biological, behavioral, social, and environmental nature, all of which are explored in the context of this encyclopedia. This comprehensive second edition includes all-new articles and wholly new coverage of topics that have seen research advances.
