This book series on International Perspectives on Aging puts the spotlight on international and comparative studies of aging. In particular, the series seeks commissioned books to examine the underlying assumptions about aging and how processes of nation state and global forces are affecting them in the international arena. As well as specific country case studies, there is a valuable opportunity for comparative analysis of countries in the Americas, Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe.
Books commissioned for the series should seek to encourage debate about the implications of the most pressing health, social welfare, economic, and other issues related to aging in various countries across the world. The book series is one of the first to attempt to bring together a truly international dimension to understanding diverse topics on aging drawn and grounded from diverse countries across all continents.
The book series has commissioned the following titles with both broad and focused themes that will attract a wide audience:
- Aging in Comparative Perspective: Processes and Policies, Ian Gillespie Cook, Ph.D., Liverpool John Moores University; Jamie Halsall, Ph.D., Huddersfield University
- Aging in China: Implications for Social Policy of a Changing Economic State, edited by Sheying Chen, Ph.D., Pace University; Jason Powell, Ph.D., University of Liverpool
