Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(12), 1018. Reviews the book, Aging into the 21st century: Middle-agers today edited by Lissy F. Jarvik (1978). Members of several disciplines speculate about the elderly in the year 2000 or later. In Part 1, a demographer “projects” and “forecasts” the age structure of the US population. In Part 2, three biologists consider means for extending the life span, and a fourth chapter discusses nutrition. Part 3, “Societal Response: Psychological Perspectives,” consists of nine chapters covering such topics as intelligence, education, stress, group therapy, environmental design, and senior power.
