"I strongly recommend the book to researchers, students, and other readers interested in longevity and aging. . . . Both the experimental findings and the theoretical discussions in this book are new and important contributions to our understanding of life span."---Shiro Horiuchi, Population and Development Review
This book definitively announces a scientific revolution in our
understanding of life history, aging, demography, and kindred subjects. . . . Longevity is one of those rare scientific books that has something both important and new to say.
"This is an important book. It provides a timely critical account of a fundamental body of work on aging and sets the stage for a new set of paradigms about senescence generally and human aging in particular, taking the first serious look at this development."―Shripad Tuljapurkar, Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley
"In this book, James Carey summarizes about a dozen years of his work on medfly demography and its implications. The overarching themes are important and innovative. And the careful attention to detail, both biological and statistical, is excellent."―Marc Mangel, University of California, Santa Cruz
"Longevity synthesizes a huge body of data collected over a long period of time, making this work unquestionably without parallel. Furthermore, Longevity is an exceptionally well-written and thoroughly analyzed treatise on some of the most important general questions in biodemography."―Thomas B. L. Kirkwood
