520    Enduring Questions in Gerontology provides a comprehensive
       perspective on the abiding issues in gerontology. Both 
       current and future gerontologists will find this book 
       useful in examining emerging dilemmas and creating a 
       context for further progress in the field of aging. The 
       most creative thinkers contributing to the gerontological 
       literature reflect on their disciplines, consider how key 
       questions have emerged, review how they have changed in 
       the decades since gerontology entered the fray, and 
       speculate what may lie ahead. The resulting collection of 
       essays offers a comprehensive perspective on the enduring 
       questions in gerontology and how they have shaped our 
       understanding of differences in the experience of old age.
       Key contributors to this volume include:. George L. 
       Maddox. Christine L. Fry. Steven Austad. Kenneth Brummel-
       Smith. Manfred Diehl. Martha Holstein. W. Andrew 
       Achenbaum. James E. Birren. As an emerging or seasoned 
       scholar, you will find insights into the ways in which 
       each disciplinary focus grapples with societal transitions,
       identifies emerging issues, and lays out strategies and 
       salient perspectives for what should come next
