Gerontology in the Era of the Third Age: Implications and Next Steps (2011)

Dawn C. Carr & Kathrin Komp, eds.

This edited volume proposes new ways of thinking about how we conceptualize the
life course, think about the role of the welfare state in the lives of older people, negotiate social roles in later life, make meaning of our lives as we age, and cultivate relationships with others during later life. It brings together theoretical concepts and frameworks, methodological advances, and emerging themes and controversies that are redefining gerontology in the era of the Third Age. Highlighting important issues that warrant further exploration and discussion, this book advances our understanding of the Third Age and focuses attention on critical issues that should be addressed in future Third Age research and scholarly development.

Contributing authors include Dawn Carr, Kathrin Komp, Suzanne Kunkel, Phyllis Moen, Chris Gilleard, Paul Higgs, Toni Calasanti, Neal King, J. Scott Brown, Scott Lynch, Jurgen Hoffmeyer-Zlotnik, Stella Chatzitheochari, Sara Arber, Graham Rowles, Lydia Manning, Scott Bass, Denise Brothers, Jenny de Jong Gierveld, Jon Hendricks, Martha Holstein, and Linda George.
