Summary
"In this collection, some of the best minds in gerontology and bioethics explore the ethical, social, and political challenges of an aging society. A unique combination of disciplines and perspectives from economics to nursing, psychology to theology - this synthesis of theory and practice provides frameworks and analyses for considering the ethical issues of both individual and societal aging." "The contributors address the major policy challenges of Social Security, Medicare, and prescription drugs as well as ethical issues ranging from individual autonomy to family responsibility to distributive justice. Specific topics covered include end-of-life decision making, family relations across generations, age-based intergenerational policies, and the reform of Social Security."--Jacket
