A compact but detailed and authoritative survey of normal and abnormal body structure and function and of disease states relevant to medical care of aged persons. Includes attention to epidemiologic, nutritional, ethical, and research matters. Will probably serve best as a supplement to standard broad textbooks of internal medicine that expand their content relevant to geriatric care and as an introduction to geriatrics for residents whose training programs have neglected that field.
