Back to podiatry book list


Welcome to the world’s most unique and dynamic textbook on aging. Aging: Concepts and Controversies is widely praised and adopted, Harry "Rick" Moody has again presented the key concepts and controversies in an engaging and accessible fashion, supported with carefully chosen adapted readings, resulting in the most captivating introduction to gerontology available today.

New to this edition of Aging: Concepts and Controversies:

* Major revision with the biology of aging and social security receiving special attention
* Updated and augmented figures and graphics using data from the Year 2000 U. S. Census.
* 11 new readings
* A web-based on-line appendix for even more up-to-date information to explore topics in depth.

From the opening chapter of Aging: Concepts and Controversies, the author encourages students to see aging not as a fixed period of life but as a process beginning at birth and extending over the entire life course. The pedagogical design of this book focuses on controversies and questions rather than on assimilating facts or coming up with a single "correct" view about aging or older people. The readings are selected to highlight ongoing debates in the field and to stimulate students to think more deeply about what is at stake in the issues presented.

Comments about Aging: Concepts and Controversies:

"I love the book. It allows students to apply knowledge from earlier courses. It combines theory and practice. It presents both sides of important issues. It is an excellent tool for critical thinking and discussion."—Rick Briggs, West Virginia University

"I will indeed adopt this text again. I’m very pleased that Moody has offered a text that is critical in its sensibility but accessible in tone – it provides a great entrée for students into the filed of aging studies and into the critical Gerontological imagination."— Jennifer Sasser-Coen, Ph.D., Marylhurst University

"This text is a great introduction to the field of aging as students like to ‘open-up’ in the topics, instead of just passively listening and reading."— Scott D. Wright, University of Utah
