9780195097573: The Oldest Old
Críticas:

The book could be very useful for those needing actuarial information about the oldest old. ... it is a convenient source of data about an increasingly important age group ( D Corless, British Medical Journal)

This is a stimulating, well written book packed with useful information. The authors provide a wealth of up-to-date data ... All those with an interest in the care of elderly people will be armed with a sound demographic basis from which to argue for appropriate resource allocation. ( Stephen Fowlie, Age and Ageing)

...a valuable, picture of a group that will make increasing demands on health and social services in years to come. ( Nursing Times)

Oldest Old is a first-class work - well-organized, well-written, and well-researched. ( The Gerontologist, Vol. 34, No. 3, 1994)

The book comprises 444 pages of facts and figures on the oldest old, covering almost every aspect of the subject. All you ever wanted to know about the oldest old, but were afraid to ask ... its scope is impressive, it has undoubted expertise, and is likely to be required reading for anyone interested in this vital topic. ( Mike Bury, University of London, Ageing and Society, Vol. 14, Part I, March 1994)

distinguished and meticulous journal ... this is a well-edited, richly informative book ... The writing is plain, effective, and purposeful.

a well-edited, richly informative book ... The writing is plain, effective, and purposeful ... this is an excellent, interesting, informative, and intellectually responsible book. ( John Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard University, The New England Journal of Medicine, Aug 1994)

Subject and author indices aid retrieval of specific information and documentation. Extensive graphs and tables are used ... The introduction succinctly presents the rationale for the development of the volume and offers an overview of the following sections and chapters ... extremely well-written ... the second section on problems in studying the oldest old is particularly needed ... The first three chapters of this set go beyond the usual generalizations of recommendations of gerontological research and deal specifically with the challenges of conducting research with the oldest old ... essential reading ... The review and recommendations on social and health policy are particularly timely ... an excellent resource for clinicians, researchers, and educators in all disciplines concerned with aging ... a valuable guide for policy-makers, health planners, and legislators, as well. ( Jane M. Armer, University of Missouri-Columbia, Clinical Gerontologist)

a first-class work - well-organized, well-written, and well-researched ... In presenting the latest available data and analyses on the very old, particularly on their health status, the book has a solid raison d'etre ... I came away from Oldest Old with a heightened admiration for the technical virtuosity of Kenneth Manton as a medical demographer and for the provocative insightfulness of Robert Binstock as a public policy analyst. Binstock's paper is the most intellectually exciting piece in the book. ( The Gerontologist, June 94, Vol. 34, No. 3)

The book comprises 144 pages of facts and figures on the oldest old, covering almost every aspect of the subject. All you ever wanted to know about the oldest old, but were afraid to ask ... impressive discussions of largely national survey data ... its scope is impressive, it has undoubted expertise, and is likely to be required reding for anyone interested in this vital topic. ( Mike Bury, University of London, Ageing and Society, Vol. 14, Part 1, March 1994)

Críticas:

Praise for The Oldest Old"This is an outstanding contribution to the growing body of literature on the oldest old."--Dorothy P. Rice, Professor, Institute for Health and Aging, University of California, San Francisco University of California"It is clearly nothing short of superb. It will be our key reference book in this area for years to come."--Knight Steel, M.D."A thoughtful and timely volume that addresses major policy and programmatic issues raised by the unprecedented growth in this very old population group. Highly readable with clearly understandable charts and tables, the collection is an important contribution to both demography and gerontology." --Choice"Serves a very useful purpose in drawing together a large store of information from national and focused studies. The careful reader can find much here of interest and much to puzzle over. . . . an excellent resource for those who want to understand more about this age group and about the way researchers and analysts approach such a subject. . . . greatly expanded and updated . . . . Serious scholars . . . will find this a book worth owning. Those responsible for teaching material about the epidemiology and/or demography of the elderly will be doubly blessed." --Journal of the AmericanGeriatrics Society

This book represents the first thorough analysis of the qualitative, as well as the quantitative changes in our ageing society. This book is a comprehensive compendium of current knowledge and a methodologic guide to assessing future findings. Nº de ref. de la librería AAV9780195097573
