" A] useful reference book. Readers will find themselves
returning to chapters again and again...""
This is the 20th and final volume in the "Societal Impact on
Aging" series. It focuses on what has been learned over the span of
the previous volumes regarding the continuing challenges for older
persons in a rapidly changing society and tries to forecast what
may be the next set of issues to lie at the intersection of social
structures and the individual aging process. The editors therefore
invited major organizers of, and contributors to, the 19 earlier
volumes to review both the accomplishments and omissions of their
efforts, discuss some timely new topics, and provide guidelines for
future research and theoretical explanations.
The book is divided into five broad topics: health and
wellbeing, including the role of religion; personality and
cognition; the impact of changes in technology and the work place;
issues of socio-cultural change and historical context; and the
familial and societal contexts of aging.
