Aging and Society critically reviews significant, contemporary research. The contributors, all experts in the field of gerontology, analyse areas of social and behavioural sciences against the background of demographic changes, which have led to a rise in the aged populations of industrialized societies. As the proportion of elderly members of societies has risen, there has been a corresponding increase in interest in ageing as a subject for research. The book studies the economic roles and status of the elderly population, the differences between bodily and mental changes that occur with age, the place of the community health centre with regard to the welfare of old people, and the political implications that are inevitable with any sharp increase in a section of society.
