Sixteen contributions reflect the complexity of questions on ethics in aging, developing them in relation to the involvement of the elderly in the design of social policy and the research which affects them. Viewpoints are presented from gerontology, philosophy, law, theology, sociology, medicine, and economics. Thornton is coordinator of a committee on gerontology at the U. of British Columbia; Winkler is in the university's philosophy department. Paper edition (0-7748-0302-X) is available for $16.95.
