About the book

Description

Aging and Ethnicity: Toward an Interface provides a framework for comparison in aging and ethnicity. This book examines the ethnic factor and its importance for the study of the elderly. Organized into five chapters, this book begins with an overview of the general demographic characteristics underlying the social structure of the ethnic elderly. This text then explores the extent to which elements of assimilation and modernization affect the lives of Canada's ethnic elderly. Other chapters consider the existing social policies as they pertain to ethnic groups and present a research agenda to guide basic and evaluation research. This book discusses as well the role of primary group relations for maintaining ethnic identity and for preventing loss of status within the family. The final chapter deals with methodological issues to be considered when studying the ethnic elderly. This book is a valuable resource for sociologists, ethnic assimilationists, medical specialists, and gerontologists.
