This a very good textbook and was the only textbook that I found that combines Family and aging. I would like to receive soon a hard copy of the book. The copy that I have it is not mine.
I decided to adopt this book for my undergraduate and graduate class.
A very well written book for advanced undergraduate students.
Content relevant to the issues of aging within the family context
The book is very current and therefore fills a key gap in the training of students. Its structure is great and the content of extreme relevance. Has had great acceptance by students and other professors and researchers in the field of aging.
Supplement sociological and psychological theoretical frameworks on aging.
This book explores the many relationships individuals have in life and the changes that may occur as a person and the realtionship ages. It highlights the differing societal changes that should be considered that were maybe not present or discussed before such as step families, divorce, elder mistreatment.
I will be using this as a recommended reading on a year 1 undergrad sociology module. The students will be spending some time looking at family relationships and the evolution of the family. This book adds to previous text about the nature of family bonds and the dependency (or not) on family ties. It describes in a clear and informative way that I think those new to sociology will understand; the key concepts and issues surrounding the family and ageing.
