This bibliography provides ample evidence of the increasing research interest in issues affecting women as they age. Over 600 annotated citations for materials published from 1980 through early 1988 are included. Although the primary focus is on older women, references dealing with middle-aged women are also included. Both pragmatic and theoretical issues are covered in the resources cited. All of the materials identified are accessible through basic library systems. While research results are reported in some annotations, the primary objective of the work is to provide the reader with extensive references to useful and appropriate materials on women and aging. The major subject areas covered include roles and relationships, economics, employment, retirement, health, sexuality, religion, housing, racial and ethnic groups, policy issues, international concerns, and middle age. An extensive selection of general items covers materials that do not fit into specific categories, but which address important areas of concern and interest. This comprehensive bibliography will be welcomed by those involved in gerontological research and women's studies.
