Gerontology is a relatively new but rapidly growing science. One tome of the Handbook of General Pathology is exclusively devoted to an assessment of currently available information. The knowledgeable contributors are from Switzerland, the United States, and East and West Germany, with five of the contributors residing in Leipzig. The editorial guidance is by Prof. G. Holle of the Karl Marx University at Leipzig. Together they have succeeded in reviewing the gerontological literature and in recording in one thick volume the accomplishments up to 1968. The result is a veritable "Handbuch" of gerontology, with all but one chapter in German.
