MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This interdisciplinary collection of essays deals with the moral issues associated with the treatment and care of the elderly-and offers proposals for solving them. Writing in a readily understandable style, the authors debate the propriety of Western society's current mechanisms for dealing with elderly citizens and consider the problems that arise for medical personnel and family members who provide such care.
