Yvette Murphy, PhD, MSW Journal of Women and Aging 2006 This is a 'value added' book for any gerontology library. -- James J. Callahan Gerontologist 2007 This volume would be an excellent addition to an undergraduate or graduate anthropology of aging course because it provides a detailed examination of an understudied population and topic. -- Angela Guy-Lee Anthropology and Aging Quarterly
