The rapidly increasing proportion of elderly in the world's population is creating a demographic structure unprecedented in world history. This volume provides the first critical examination on an international basis of the problems facing legal and social systems as a result of these demographic changes. Experts analyze population trends and their relationship to world population policies and structures, consider how family support systems cope with these changes, and address a wide range of legal and social problems connected with policies toward the elderly.
