Where to buy it


This volume combines ten papers on various aspects of aging in Canada (which together have been published in a special issue of the Journal of Canadian Studies) with several of the most important and interesting relevant essays from other sources. The result is a wide-ranging overview of the subject.

Though the contributions reflect the latest in scholarly research, they are written in a manner accessible to the non-specialist; the book is thus particularly well-suited to textbook use.
