Population Ageing (2017) 10:311–314 DOI 10.1007/s12062-017-9178-2 Book Review- Handbook of Theories of Ageing (Third Edited Edition) by Vern L. Bengtson and Richard A. Settersten Springer Publishing, New York, 2016 £110.00 Hardcover. ISBN 978-0- 8261-2942-0 Sara Zella Published online: 7 March 2017 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2017 The third edition of the “Handbook of Theories of Ageing” is a fascinating journey between theories and concepts of ageing, suitable for scholars and students who aim to expand their knowledge of this field. The organization of the book – with seven sections, 35 chapters, 718 pages and 70 contributors – facilitates the reader in understanding the concepts and theoretical approaches. Particularly useful are the introductions of each section which highlight the key contributions of the specific chapter, explain the main theories and integrate narratives about each section as a whole. Similar to the previous editions of the Handbook (Bengtson et al. 2009; Bengtson and Schaie 1999), this volume proposes theoretical and conceptual development in research on ageing, contributing to the debate across and within a multitude of disciplines: biology, psychology, social sciences, policy, intervention and practice. In addition, this edition gives a greater emphasis on a wider range of health outcomes and http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Population Ageing Springer Journals
