Description

The general concern of this work is how matters of age and place influence behaviour and attitudes. The specific focus is on the rural aged, nationally and internationally, as a population who are though to "lag behind" in a modernizing or modernized society. It builds a foundation of knowledge about a relatively little-known population, and then uses this neglected group to test theories of social change and adaptation.

Contents

The family life of the rural elderly; the economics of later life for the rural elderly; the health of the rural aged; religion and the rural elderly; perceived needs and social services; the old folks at home - a new paradigm.
