Not yet rated | write a review
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.

Editorial Reviews

?This collection of essays provides an analysis of Canadian/U.S. social policy toward aging. The first chapter presents a continental view of demography. Subsequent chapters examine the Canadian and U.S. perspectives on social policy, long-term care, the chronic mentally ill, rural aging, aging veterans, native elders, and cross-national intergenerational families.?-Current Literature on Aging
