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.

Editorial Reviews

?The primary focus of this 622-item annotated bibliography is the older woman, although it also includes material on middle-aged women. The references, largely published in the 1980s, are divided into 13 sections: roles and relationships, economics, employment, retirement, health, sexuality, religion, housing, racial and ethnic groups, policy issues, international concerns, middle age, and general. The first and the last sections contain more than 100 items each; religion has 11. The references in each section are arranged alphabetically by author within format categories: books, articles, films, government documents, and dissertations. Author and subject indexes provide access to specific items, although the subject indexes does not always include items under all relevant listings. This bibliography covers primarily sociological aspects of the subject, with some interest in economic and policy issues. Even with this narrowing of scope, the coverage is very selective. The annotations are clear but brief, and references include both scholarly and popular titles. Students beginning with a paper or researchers looking for general background would find this book helpful.?-Choice
