Overview

In the new, updated edition of this textbook, Harry Moody takes an approach which combines theory with controversy at a time when every aspect of provision for the aged is under scrutiny or attack.

Students are invited to discuss social and ethical issues such as health-care provision and euthanasia, as well as more theoretical arguments about the meaning of old age.

Explores controversies such as rationing health care; "right do die"; entitlements; & more.
