Details

This book explores the theoretical issues inherent in exploring later life in modern society. To deal effectively with the challenges created by population aging, it is vital to first understand these demographic, economic, and social changes and, to the extent possible, their causes, consequences, and implications. Sociological theories offer a knowledge base, a number of useful analytic approaches and tools, and unique theoretical perspectives that can be important aids to this task for students, researchers and policy makers.
