The ageing of the population has enormous implications for the provision of, and access to, health care. Christina Victor's important textbook provides comprehensive overview of the experiences of older people, chapters on physical health, mental health, disability and lifestyle, a thesis of current policy developments, the key debates on the future health of elders and an international, up-to-date perspective. Written by a leader in the field, the book covers key questions such as the fitness of future older people, the widening inequalities in their health and whether health in old age is related to habits and behaviour in earlier life.

Review:

Christina Victor's authoritative text on ageing and health digs deep into the meaning and challenges of old age. It is essential reading for practitioners as well as gerontological specialists. Professor Fiona Ross, Dean, Faculty of Health & Social Care Sciences, Kingston University and St George's, University of London

Professor Victor's book is highly readable and informative about the different models of health. It contains a wealth of fascinating material, from the types of health-related data collected in early censuses to the emergence of anti-ageing medicine. She also uses examples from research to illustrate and enliven key points throughout. There are useful exercises for postgraduate students, as well as key websites. This is an important contribution to the literature in gerontology. Ann Bowling, Department of Primary Care and Population Health, University College London Medical School

This is an informative, accessible and essential reader and study guide for anyone with an interest in ageing: gerontologists, health and social care professionals, managers, policy makers, academics and researchers. Brenda Roe, Professor of Health Research, Edge Hill University
