Each section is introduced by an eminent authority in the area, including George L. Maddox, Gunhild O. Hagestad, David L. Gutmann, Robert H. Binstock, and Dail A. Neugarten, who explains and highlights Neugartens contributions in light of the most recent research.Carefully edited by Dail Neugarten, each chapter presents the reader with Bernice Neugartens original formulations on topics such as age norms and age constraints, the changing meanings of age, and age neutral social policy.
