Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging Book Review:

This is the new and fully revised third edition of the well-received text that is the benchmark book in the field of nutrition and aging. The editors (specialists in geriatric nutrition, medical sociology, and clinical nutrition, respectively) and contributors (a panel of recognized academic nutritionists, geriatricians, clinicians, and other scientists) have added a number of new chapters and have thoroughly updated the widely acclaimed second edition. This third edition provides fresh perspectives and the latest scientific and clinical developments on the interaction of nutrition with age-associated disease and provides practical, evidence-based options to enhance this at-risk population’s potential for optimal health and disease prevention. Chapters on a wide range of topics, such as the role of nutrition in physical and cognitive function, and coverage of an array of clinical conditions (obesity, diabetes, heart failure, cancer, kidney disease, osteoporosis), compliment chapters on food insecurity, anti-aging and nutritional supplements, making this third edition uniquely different from previous editions. Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging, Third Edition, is a practical and comprehensive resource and an invaluable guide to nutritionists, physicians, nurses, social workers and others who provide health care for the ever-increasing aging population.

Handbook of Rural Aging Book Review:

The Handbook of Rural Aging goes beyond the perspective of a narrow range of health professions, disciplines, and community services that serve older adults in rural America to encompass the full range of perspectives and issues impacting the communities in which rural older adults live. Touching on such topics as work and voluntarism, technology, transportation, housing, the environment, social participation, and the delivery of health and community services, this reference work addresses the full breadth and scope of factors impacting the lives of rural elders with contributions from recognized scholars, administrators, and researchers. This Handbook buttresses a widespread movement to garner more attention for rural America in policy matters and decisions, while also elevating awareness of the critical circumstances facing rural elders and those who serve them. Merging demographic, economic, social, cultural, health, environmental, and political perspectives, it will be an essential reference source for library professionals, researchers, educators, students, program and community administrators, and practitioners with a combined interest in rural issues and aging.

Handbook of Asian Aging Book Review:

In western countries, the rising tide of population aging took 100 years to alter the face of societies, but Asia is experiencing comparable changes in not much more than a quarter of a century. Contributors to "The Handbook of Aging" describe the magnitude of these changes and their effects on the aged and on societies attempting to adapt to the dramatic improvements in life expectancy brought on by rapid economic and social transformations. Asia encompasses a vast reach from Pakistan and India to Japan, the Philippines, and Indonesia, and in this book including Australia. "The Handbook of Aging" provides a framework for making sense of the meeting between reverential views of the elderly and contemporary priorities as Asia arrives at the crossroads. The need for innovative approaches to social policy and personal practices is nowhere more evident than in Asian countries, where modern marketing economies have forced hard political choices. The economic tigers of the Asian-Pacific region experienced the aging of their populations ahead of other Asian countries, but solutions reached during times of financial boom are being re-examined as economies come back to earth, with soft or hard landings. "The Handbook of Asian Aging" provides an atlas of the far-reaching changes that are afoot and that will become even more pronounced in the near future.

Handbook of the Biology of Aging Book Review:

Handbook of the Biology of Aging, Seventh Edition, reviews and synthesizes recent findings and discoveries in the field. This volume is part of The Handbooks of Aging series, which also includes The Handbook of the Psychology of Aging and The Handbook of Aging and the Social Sciences. The book is organized into two parts. Part 1 covers basic aging processes. It covers concepts relevant to clinical research, such as muscle, adipose tissue, and stem cells. It discusses research on how dietary restriction can slow down the aging process and extend life in a wide range of species. Part 2 deals with the medical physiology of aging. It contains several chapters on the aging of the human brain. These chapters deal not only with diseases but also with normal aging changes to cerebral vasculature and myelination as well as the clinical implications of those changes. Additional chapters cover how aging affects central features of human health such as insulin secretion, pulmonary and cardiac function, and the ability to maintain body weight and body temperature. The volume is primarily directed at basic researchers who wish to keep abreast of new research outside their own subdiscipline. It will also be useful to medical, behavioral, and social gerontologists who want to learn about the discoveries of basic scientists and clinicians. Contains basic aging processes as determined by animal research as well as medical physiology of aging as known in humans Covers hot areas of research, like stem cells, integrated with longstanding areas of interest in aging like telomeres, mitochondrial function, etc. Edited by one of the fathers of gerontology (Masoro) and contributors represent top scholars in gerintology

Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Impacts of Population Aging Book Review:

The increases in global wealth and the developments in the field of health have led to decreases in mortality rates, increases in life expectancy, and decreases in fertility rate, leading to a population that is rapidly consisting more and more of older individuals. The demographic changes affect nearly all parts of society including economics, education, health, social security systems, socio-cultural activities, and more. Thus, it is essential to study the impacts that an aging population will have on society. The Handbook of Research on Economic and Social Impacts of Population Aging analyzes the economic and social impacts of population aging from a multidisciplinary perspective. Covering topics such as life expectancy, social welfare, health, social security, and more, this book is essential for social scientists, sociologists, demographers, economists, medical professionals, government officials, policymakers, professionals, researchers, managers, students, and academicians looking to understand the effects of an aging population on modern society.

Contemporary Narratives of Ageing Illness Care Book Review:

This collection of essays explores cultural narratives of care in the contexts of ageing and illness. It includes both text-based and practice-based contributions by leading and emerging scholars in humanistic studies of ageing. They consider care not only in film (feature and documentary) and literature (novel, short story, children’s picturebook) but also in the fields of theatre performance, photography and music. The collection has a broad geographical scope with case studies and primary texts from Europe and North America but also from Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, Argentina and Mexico. The volume asks what care, autonomy and dependence may mean and how these may be inflected by social and cultural specificities. Ultimately, it invites us to reflect on our relations to others as we face the global and local challenges of both the pandemic and ageing societies.

Handbook on Ageing with Disability Book Review:

"Mainstream gerontological scholarship has taken little heed of people aging with disability, and they have also been largely overlooked by both disability and aging policies and service systems. The Handbook on Aging with Disability is the first to pull together knowledge about the experience of aging with disability. It provides a broad look at scholarship in this developing field and across different groups of people with disability in order to form a better understanding of commonalities across groups and identify unique facets of aging within specific groups. Drawing from academic, personal, and clinical perspectives, the chapters address topics stemming from how the aging with disability experience is framed, the heterogeneity of the population aging with disability and the disability experience, issues of social exclusion, health and wellness, frailty, later life, and policy contexts for aging with disability in various countries. Responding to the need to increase access to knowledge in this field, the Handbook provides guideposts for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers about what matters in providing services, developing programs, and implementing policies that support persons aging with long-term disabilities and their families"--

Fit Soul Book Review:

Do you sometimes feel that no matter how much wealth you accumulate, toys you own, friendships you make or physical and mental mountains you conquer, you're still at the end of the day unfulfilled - with a gnawing deep down inside that something is "still missing" or that you're meant for something greater than what you're doing right now? You're not alone. That loss of direction, purpose and deep, fulfilling meaning is absent in the lives of some of the most successful or fit people you'll ever meet.Over the past several years, as Ben has repeatedly witnessed in both himself and others the ultimate unfulfillment of a sole focus upon carnal, fleshly pursuits, and as he's observed great thinkers and philosophers while continually seeking wisdom, he's become increasingly convinced that caring for one's spirit is as important-no, actually far more important-than caring for one's body and brain. But after your muscles have atrophied, your skin has sagged, your brain has degraded and accumulated with plaque, your blood vessels have become clogged, and your nerves have become weakened-long after your relentless pursuit of fitness or health or longevity has become a vain effort-your spirit can be just as strong and as bright as ever. How about you? Have you gained the world yet left your soul behind? Do you feel like that most important part of you - your soul - is shrunken, neglected and unfit? Do you crave for more meaning, purpose and fulfillment in your life? Then this book - Fit Soul - was written exactly for you. Within the pages - written in a practical, easy-to-understand way with tips, tricks, strategies and solutions that will be simple to implement within your own life - you'll discover everything you need to know to care for your soul, attain true spiritual fitness, discover union with God and find the happiness you have always craved for and deserve.

The New Sociology of Ageing Book Review:

The New Sociology of Ageing seeks to explore the challenges and opportunities of Ageing as a global force in its own right working alongside globalisation, urbanisation, new technology and now both climate change and global pandemics in transforming life in the 21st century. Through the eyes of a young sociology student and her multigenerational family, this book seeks to sketch out a new sociological framework to interpret this societal shift and to explore how the 'New Old' - the Baby Boomer generation - might be mobilised as an agency of social change in transforming later life. It also explores the possibility of this generation as the co-architects of a new intergenerational social contract for the era ahead rather than just remaining the recipients of a post-war 20th century social contract that society can no longer support. This book therefore seeks to fill a significant gap in current textbook provision by raising the profile and providing a broad overview of the emerging discipline of the sociology of ageing. With Britain as a case study and societies across the world as examples, it seeks to explore the emerging revolutions in work & retirement, the potential crises in pensions, healthcare and housing, and the transformations in both family life, and in our attitudes to sex and death in later life. It seeks to introduce students to the dynamics of demography as a sociological force of the future, as well as to alert them - as the younger generation - to the perils and the promises of longevity as societies across the world approach the 100 Year Life. Japan is nearly there; Europe and S.E. Asia are close behind and eventually even Africa will follow. This book will be of interest to undergraduate students and early scholars in Sociology, Social Sciences, Gerontology and Social Policy.
