This book explores the global challenge: understanding aging as a medical concept, social concept and population term. The focus is on China and global aging. The book further assesses the rapid rise of aging populations and what could be entitled ‘The Silver Tsunami’, highlighting how an unstoppable force of populational aging needs to be analyzed and what the social and economic implications are for all continents across the globe.
