This volume collects the foundation papers in the discipline of Geriatric medicine. The book begins with a chapter on those papers that established the field. It then goes on to provide a long overdue review of the important "classic" papers in geriatric medicine and includes information on the development of health systems which support the care of older patients. Each chapter begins with a commentary by a faculty member with special interest or expertise in that area.
