The first edition of Family Relationships in Later Life (1983), marked the beginning of serious academic interest in the area of overlap between family studies and gerontology. Used by practitioners, scholars and instructors alike, that book outlined the nature of interpersonal relationships within the families of the aged, major themes concerning families of the elderly, and policy and intervention issues. This second edition - not a revised edition but a completely new book - carries on the tradition of its highly-regarded predecessor. Each chapter in the new edition synthesizes present knowledge on the topic. Each also presents the author's most recent empirical work on the subject or suggests applications of this knowledge to policy or practice. Contributors come from a variety of disciplines and are leading figures in this area of inquiry. The new edition of Family Relationships in Later Life is an important tool for research, practice and instruction for family professionals and gerontologists.
