The Global Dynamics of Aging $140.00
Editors: Jason L. Powell (Associate Dean of Faculty, Coventry University, UK) and Sheying Chen (Pace University, US)
Book Description:
This book explores the issue of global aging and its impact on different nation states across the world. It is in three parts: the first part sets the scene about the challenges of global aging; part two utilizes a number of case studies examining how different nation states manage social issues associated with aging; the final part explores the impact of global aging on some of the continents such as Europe and the Americas. The book is by its very nature global as it brings researchers from all parts of the world to give the reader a very rich comparative book. (Imprint: Nova)
