Understanding Aging and Diversitywill present theoretical perspectives from sociology that contribute to understanding the impact on individuals and societies of the increasingly larger and more diverse global population of older adults. The rapid increase in the size of the global older adult population is resulting in compelling social changes that need to be understood and addressed internationally within many social institutions, including education, family, government, health care, leisure, and religion. This book will be of interest to students, researchers and scholars of sociology, gerontology, health sciences, social work, and anthropology.
