Summary
Shenk studies the social, medical, and spiritual implications of this devastating disease, which appears to be increasingly robbing the elderly of their memories and straining the lives of loved ones. He studies the early, middle, and late stages, including how they are dealt with in different societies and drawing on historical and contemporary case studies of suspected disease
Summary
