Living longer: ageing, development and social protection
Zed Books, 2004 - 308 pagine
This book examines the links between well-being and development, drawing on examples from low, middle and high-income countries. It examines aging in a number of very different development contexts--in Argentina, Brazil, China, Ghana, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Ukraine, UK and USA. It highlights the complexity of relationships between development and the way later life is experienced, identifies key priorities for policy-makers, and maps out an urgent research agenda.
