Description

As the preface indicates, this sorely needed tool is more than a dictionary. In addition to defining terms specific to gerontology (`circuit breakers,' `Detroit syndrome') and multidisciplinary terms (`suicide,' `cholesterol') pertinent to gerontology, in alphabetic order, it provides one to four references for each term. . . . . Highly recommended for upper-division and graduate collections. Choice

Because of the different disciplines that gerontology encompasses, the definition it uses can prove bewildering to students, scholars, and practitioners. Diana Harris is the first scholar to deal with this terminology in a comprehensive manner. Reflecting multidisciplinary perspectives and introducing standardization, her dictionary offers hundreds of precisely defined terms and concepts, as well as detailed, up-to-date bibliographic information.
