Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book is a review of U.S. federal programs, legislation, and public policy for healthcare and social services for older persons.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe the federal policies for older persons and their background and evolution with time.
Audience: This book is aimed at gerontologists and public policy professionals.
Features: The clear organization of this book is one of its great strengths. The authors turn a morass of bureaucratic writings into understandable concepts, prose, and tables.
Assessment: This book is a felicitous marriage of civics and gerontology, laced with an intellectual history of healthcare policies. All angry young men and women wishing to change the world and improve healthcare and social services for older persons in the U.S. must first come to grips with the truths presented here and then ponder their inner meanings.

Booknews
Addressing those public policies that have the greatest influence on the lives of older people and those that have been promulgated specifically for older people, this volume analyzes the policy process; explores national policy development on behalf of older people; and describes the major public policies set up to help the elderly, including Social Security, Medicare, The Older Americans Act, institutional care, and employment and retirement policy. The final chapter discusses the advocacy process in the field of aging. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
