Editorial Reviews

?Human Longevity is a term that has many ramifications, so it is difficult to know from the title what types of works might be included in such a bibliography. In his introdution, the compiler points out that the reader can trace how through the centuries humankind has particularized and revered long life, how researchers, have sought diligently to reveal the causes of aging, and how a social good prompts consternation among those who govern us.' The materials presented in fifteen chapters, including such topics as rejuventation, biomedical research, and health planning and the social question. The items, both books and journal articles, are numbered throughout and a large percentage, particularly the more recent ones, are annotated. . . . The final section includes both an author index and a subject index, the latter probably being the most helpful to the average reader since the majority of authors refer to only one work. The work is well bound on good paper, the print is easily readable, and the format is superior to those of most printed bibliographies. The book is an important addition to Greenwood's Bibliographies and Indexes in Gerontology series, one that should be valuable for persons interested in any aspects of the aging process.?-ARBA
