The increasing interest in the problems of the care of the aged made necessary a new edition of this book. Since the publication of the first volume, a National Advisory Committee on Gerontology has been established, and the U. S. Public Health Service has undertaken a nationwide survey of investigations on aging. The National Research Council has set up a Committee on Aging, and an American Branch of an International Club for Research on Aging has been organized under Dr. William deB. MacNider of the University of North Carolina. The present volume includes nine new chapters. The older material has been revised and brought up to date. As a source book of information on the problems of aging, with good bibliographies and with articles by recognized authorities, this book may be unhesitatingly recommended as the most authentic compilation of material in the field.
