Abstract As the chapters of the Handbook of Sociology of Aging have shown, many remarkable and ground-breaking strides have been made in the field over the past 30 years. The histories and current state of scholarship in each of the topics represented in the handbook provide a solid foundation on which to build future research agendas. In this final chapter, we identify some of the most provocative or pressing topics that might be nurtured in the decade ahead and how sociology can play a role in understanding them.
