Focusing primarily on the human ageing process, this illustrated text offers a broad overview of all facets of the subject. In addition to coverage of important biological topics, the psychological and sociological implications of ageing are also discussed. Addressing issues of concern in both gerontology and geriatrics, the book is primarily addressed to future health professionals. Features of the book are that it discusses the direct behavioural and social consequences of ageing; that it provides an eight-page colour atlas depicting tissue changes in organ systems; that it presents current theories on why ageing occurs; and that it describes the biomedical aspects of ageing, including background material on the ageing process in other life forms.
