This book cuts a wide swath in the field of social and clinical gerontology. It should be a
primer for students of gerontology who want to understand the challenges in this growing
discipline. The jewels in this book are the important data on ageing in Singapore, which are
scattered in the various chapters. The authors have considerable experience working with
elderly people and it is this experience which makes reading exciting.
