The first edition of "Family Relationships in Later Life" marked the beginning of a serious interest in the intersection of family scholarship and study of the aged. It outlined the nature of interpersonal relationships within the family of the aged, some major issues concerning families of the elderly and some policy and intervention issues. This second edition carries on the tradition of its predecessor. Each chapter synthesizes the 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. The new edition of "Family Relationships in Later Life" ia a tool for research, practice and instruction for family professionals and gerontologists.
