Overview

New Aging: Politics and Change in America / Edition 1

This timely, persuasive work is informed by Torres-Gil's considerable experience in political, policy, and administrative elder affairs positions. It examines the compelling need to reform current public policy as it reacts to changing demographics and attempts to serve the needs of older people. Torres-Gil acknowledges that change will be difficult and is careful to detail available options, solutions, and actions which are equitable and realistic. This is a provocative, informative, and prescriptive response to an obvious national problem of immense concern. It will guide policy formulation and implementation in the area of aging programs throughout the 1990s.
