Aging in World History (Themes in World History). It is therefore necessarily also about American attitudes toward the past and future and the underlying nature of wisdom. The book is exhaustive, its line of development persuasive. It reflects a continuing ambiguity and multiplicity of attitudes in society at every stage. Cole makes a powerful case for the proposition that we can no longer afford the illusions about aging that we have inherited from the 19th century.

"Haber and Gratton lay to rest many conventional assumptions concerning the place of older persons in American history." —Choice

"Haber and Gratton’s meaty little book does more than provide an intelligent synthesis of existing old-age history; its new interpretations, insights, and shifts of emphasis will provoke responses and help move historians’ work away from the now threadbare original disputes in e field toward new questions and approaches." —American Historical Review

"Indeed, Haber and Gratton give us a refreshingly multidimensional history of the shift in old-age security from work, assets, or children to government annuities." —Contemporary Sociology

"... the history of old age has finally come of age. The authors successfully synthesize the best of the earlier social and cultural studies with new empirical evidence and recent findings of economic historians." —Journal of Economic History

"A truly ‘revisionary’ interpretation of the cultural and structural forces that shaped the elderly’s lives from the colonial period to the present. Lucid and controversial, [it] is bound to be widely cited and hotly contested." —W. Andrew Achenbaum

This social history of the American elderly offers a provocative new view of aging in the United States. It revises traditional assumptions about the economic status of the old and challenges the long-held contention that industrialization destroyed family relationships.

This is an excellent book that is unfortunately going out of print. It covers the colonial through contemporary periods and makes arguments that tie three centuries of geriatric experience together. It incorporates and offers a critical analysis of previous research. The prose is clear and accessible to a wide audience. This book is useful for students and scholars.

Slow start but an otherwise-worthwhile summary of historian's perspectives on aging in the US and a good analysis by the authors.
