Ageing Societies (Paperback)

Ageing Societies By Sarah Harper Cover Image


This unique look at an increasingly important topic examines both the Developed and Less Developed Worlds, challenging the doom and burden scenario to show the opportunities and realities of an increasingly ageing population over the next twenty years. Topics include broad aspects of work,
family, and health, as well as the theoretical issues of age, age discrimination, demographic change, and others.
