Yes, check out Michael Rose's book, "Evolutionary Biology of Ageing" (Oxford  
Univ. Press, 1990).  After reading Stearns and Williams, you probably will be  
well-prepared to read this book.  To paraphrase  from reviews in Nature and  
Science, Rose surveys and synthesizes the literature on ageing in the light  
evolutionary theory.
