The productive contribution by older adults to the lives of others through altruism and helping is the focus of this book, which provides a useful antidote to the view that the elderly are recipients rather than givers of help.<P></P><P>Following a brief historical survey of ageing treatments, the authors present their own theoretical model of successful ageing.
