520    Successful Aging as a Contemporary Obsession exposes and 
       complicates contemporary readings of successful aging, 
       questioning and defamiliarizing Western visions of the 
       place of old age in the life course. This volume brings 
       fresh insight and international perspectives that expand 
       our collective imagination about what it is to age, and, 
       by extension, to live.
