Aging and Adult Development in the Developing World: Applying Western Theories and Concepts

Synopsis

Most studies of human development in developing societies have focused on the childhood stage, and in a few cases, adolescence, since this age group represents about half the population in developing societies. The developed world, however, is experiencing a surge in the elderly population and this has spurred its study. There is growing recognition that studies are needed in order to understand aging in all contexts, and to discover how the experience may differ in developing and developed societies. In this book, the authors discuss the appropriateness or inappropriateness of applying Western theories and perspectives to studies of aging in the developing world.
