520    This state-of-the-art handbook will keep researchers and 
       practitioners in gerontology abreast of the newest 
       theories and models of aging. With virtually all new 
       contributors and content, this edition contains 35 
       chapters by the most highly respected luminaries in the 
       field. It addresses theories and concepts built on 
       cumulative knowledge in four disciplinary areas - biology,
       psychology, social sciences, and policy and practice - as 
       well as landmark advances in trans-disciplinary science. 
       With its explicit focus on theory, the handbook is unique 
       in providing essential knowledge about primary 
       explanations for aging, spanning from cells to societies. 
       The chapters in the third edition place a strong emphasis 
       on the future of theory development, assessing the current
       state of theories and providing a roadmap for how theory 
       can shape research, and vice versa, in years to come. Many
       chapters also address connections between theories and 
       policy or practice. Each set of authors has been asked to 
       consider how theories in their area address matters of 
       diversity and inequalities in aging, and how theories 
       might be revised or tested with these matters in mind. The
       third edition also contains a new section, "Standing on 
       the Shoulders of Giants", which includes personal essays 
       by senior gerontologists who share their perspectives on 
       the history of ideas in their fields, and on their 
       experiences with the process and prospects of developing 
       good theory. Hallmarks of the third edition: * Highlights 
       important gains in trans-disciplinary theories of aging.* 
       Emphasizes the future of theory development.* Provides 
       insights on theory development from living legends in 
       gerontology.* Examines what human diversity and inequality
       mean for aging theories.* Emphasizes interconnections 
       between theory, research, intervention, and policy.* 
       Underscores international issues with greater 
       representation of international authors.* Includes section
       introductions by the editors and associate editors that 
       summarize theoretical developments.Key Features: * 
       Highlights variability and diversity in aging processes, 
       from the cellular level of biological aging to the 
       societal level of public policy.* Provides insights on 
       theory development from living legends in gerontology.* 
       Offers intergenerational, interdisciplinary, and 
       international perspectives.*
