The long awaited sequel to Birren and Bengtson's landmark text, EMERGENT THEORIES OF AGING has arrived. Dedicated to James E. Birren, this volume continues to explore and expand upon the bases of theory-building and research design in aging. Renowned researchers examine biological, biomedical, psychological, and social science concepts and theories. In addition, this volume contains a new section that explores the potentials for successful interventions by applying theories to gerontological practice, public policy, and mental health and aging. This text is a valuable resource for gerontologists, academics, psychologists, and graduate-level students.

About the Author:

Vern L. Bengtson, PhD, is AARP/university professor of gerontology emeritus and research professor, Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging, School of Social Work, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California. A senior statesman in gerontology, Bengtson is a world-recognized expert on the sociology of the life course, family sociology, social psychology, ethnicity and aging. He has been elected as president of the Gerontological Society of America and has been granted two MERIT awards for research from the National Institutes of Health. He has written or edited 17 books and published more than 260 research papers. Early in his career, Bengtson started the Longitudinal Study of Generations, a multigeneration and multidisciplinary investigation of families, aging, and social change, which now is in its 45th year of data collection from more than 350 multigenerational families. He has received research awards from the Gerontological Society of America, the American Sociological Association, the American Psychological Association, the National Council on Family Relations, and the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion. As the lead editor on the two prior editions of the Handbook of Theories of Aging, and coeditor of the book that preceded them, Emergent Theories of Aging, Dr. Bengtson has led the charge to transform gerontology into a field that is rich in both data and theories.
