Social Policies for the Elderly in the Third World


This volume proposes a clearly structured method to study social programs for the elderly in economically developing nations. Case studies, utilizing the specific criteria formulated by Tracy to measure the applicability of one country's social welfare program to another country's needs, illustrate how the analytical model helps to outline a unique and potentially beneficial program for each region. The challenge facing Third World countries as their older populations increase receives practical, rather than purely academic or technical attention, marking the text as a valuable, workable tool for social policy makers.
