This bibliography provides a broad yet concise overview of available resources in gerontological social work. Chapters by expert contributors include materials judged by the authors to be most valuable to those seeking a fundamental knowledge of the field. Thus the volume is not comprehensive, but instead includes those works considered the best resources to consult initially. Materials listed include books, articles, reports, journals, and audiovisual materials. Each entry is matched with a descriptive and evaluative annotation. The book begins with an essay that overviews gerontological social work and discusses the organization of the volume. The first chapter contains a listing of general works, particularly books and articles that address aging from a social work perspective. The second chapter contains entries for books and articles related to clinical practice issues. The third chapter, on educational issues, includes books, articles, curriculum modules, reports, and annotated bibliographies. The fourth, on geriatric health services in social work, has entries for books and articles. A fifth chapter, on resource information and materials, provides detailed descriptions of journals, audiovisuals, institutions, and media resource guides. Author and subject indexes conclude this important reference work.

Editorial Reviews

.,."a useful resource. It may be especially beneficial for teachers preparing new courses on social work and the aged. It orients everyone in the field to the range of literature and resources on aging, and expedites the selection of pertinent references for general policy, practice or human behavior courses."-Journal of Teaching in Social Work
