The Aged in Rural America


"Krout successfully organizes and analyzes the sociological and demographic literature on rural elderly collected in his previous work, The Rural Elderly: An Annotated Biblioraphy of Social Science Research. Written in a clear and concise manner, Krout competently reviews the social science literature in demography, social work, gerontology, and sociology. He provides chapters on demographic and economic trends, attitudes and values, physical and mental health, housing, transportation, and social support, both informal and from social agencies.... A very useful addition to public as well as college and university libraries." - Choice
