Abstract

Excerpt: “The global aging of human populations has received increasing interest and has become a growing concern in the beginning of the 21st century…a whole new matrix of generational relations and late life possibilities is emerging. In this chapter we examine how these challenges can be addressed from a global, cross-cultural perspective that helps understand two broad interrelated facets of late adulthood: (a) how older adults function as social actors in the setting of diverse societies and (b) how the intersection of culture and globalizing contexts creates increasingly varied ways of experiencing late adulthood…” (introduction to chapter 10)
