Human aging is a complex, multifaceted experience that unfolds over an entire lifetime. While human aging is universal, it is also wildly variable, shaped by individual, social, cultural, political, geographic and historical contexts. Gerontology: The Basics explores the field of research, education and practice which takes on the complex and multifaceted questions, issues and problems of adults aging and old age. Intended or anyone interested in understanding the origins of gerontology and its unique purview, we invite the reader to join us in a critical examination of what we think we know about becoming and being old and, perhaps, be inspired to engage more deeply in their own travels through the life-course.

Over recent decades, Critical Gerontology has emerged as a distinctive voice and analytic framework for challenging power and injustice in an aging society. Critical Gerontologists ask troublesome questions about ideology, control, and the ways in which knowledge is constructed (and by whom). Above all, they have called for a deeper approach to theory-work and praxis around the wild, emergent, and complex phenomena of adult aging, especially as we travel into the farthest reaches of the life course.
