Fall Faculty Books:

Whitfield, vice provost of academic affairs and former co-director of Duke's Center on Health & Society, addresses the social, behavioral and biological factors influencing key public health issues facing a rising number of older minority Americans.

"The array of topics covered is amazing, making this book a valuable, significant resource for many disciplines...This multidisciplinary review of the literature on minority aging presents the scholarship related to public health and 'social, behavioral, and biological concerns' of aged minorities like no other publication. Graduate students will certainly be well-served by this book, as would faculty teaching aging at both undergraduate and graduate levels...Highly recommended."
