Further details

Aging has emerged as a major and urgent concern for individuals, enterprises and governments. This edited collection offers a critical overview of the most significant themes and topics, with discussions of current research, theoretical controversies and emerging issues. The twenty-nine chapters, by authors from across the globe, are divided into sections covering: Key Issues and Challenges; The Aging Workforce; Managing an Aging Workforce; Living in an Aging Society; and Developing Pubic Policy. While three chapters focus on education and training, knowledge and skills are addressed throughout the book as factors shaping our responses to demographic aging.
