This volume represents a pioneering effort in Canadian-U.S. social policy analysis in the field of gerontology. Beginning with a continental viewpoint on demography, the book proceeds to deal with seven specific topics by means of a nation-to-nation analysis. Topics include social policy, long-term care, the chronic mentally ill, rural aging, aging veterans, native elders, and cross-national and intergenerational families. The last three topics are seldom addressed in books on aging; they are a vital new contribution to gerontological knowledge in both the U.S. and Canada.
