IN COLLECTIONS Pages: This 8-week course is a critical analysis of aging in society.

The course examines the history, dynamics, social institutions, and structural factors associated with aging. This course will help students develop an understanding of how ageism and stereotypes influence the aging process; evaluate sociological theories. Ageing & Society is an interdisciplinary and international journal devoted to the understanding of human ageing and the circumstances of older people in their social and cultural contexts.

It draws contributions and has readers from many disciplines including gerontology, sociology, demography, psychology, economics, medicine, social policy and the humanities.

`Ageing in Society brings forth exciting new questions, fresh perspectives, and a necessary critical approach to key issues - this is indeed an authoritative introduction. The authors not only have made significant contributions to gerontology, but offer the reader considerations for what could be, not just what is, the design of old age in society.

Aging gracefully requires the courage to face our burdens, to accept our blessings, and to recreate our lives in new ways.

Reviews "Providing a timely and insightful examination of the linkage between mass media and aging issues, Mass Media, An Aging Population and the Baby Boomers will prove a valuable resource for scholars and students in media and gerontology. This book may be used in undergraduate and graduate courses in communication, gerontology, sociology, and political science.".

The third edition of this classic textbook provides an invaluable guided tour through key areas: theories of media and society; studies of media organization; and studies of media, culture, and ideology.

Critical overviews are combined with original case studies. New essays include overviews of media and society from the perspectives of class, gender, and ethnicity that plug media studies into. Presenting an objective view of the realities of aging, both positive and negative, the book examines aging from micro/macro, personal, community, societal, and global perspectives.

This fifth edition describes important changes in the field of social gerontology and the growth in such topics as diversity, global aging, and the life course.
