Abstract

This book is designed to aid professionals and students in understanding the multiple forces that impinge on the health and social status of aging populations. It will be an invaluable tool for professionals, students, policy makers, researchers, and practitioners in related fields who are interested in the well-being of the elderly, because it examines how traditional concerns must be expanded to include social and behavioral perspectives and how such considerations must take into account not only individual and generational differentiation, but also the diversity resulting from particular groups and subgroups within the aging population from such factors as geography, disease, disability, and ethnicity.
