This original book explores the nature and extent of global aging in contemporary society. It examines the impact of populational aging on different continents in the world. The book then moves its attention to exploring aging in China. In particular, it reviews the implications of urbanization for Chinese older people. It draws from social theory to illuminate a perceptual framework to examine rapid social change. (Imprint: Novinka )
