Description

The Over-Forty Society begins by exploding the myths that the old are intellectually simple, socially unproductive and asexual.
The authors focus on labour market issues, pensions and income maintenance, education, health care, housing, economics and politics, and social services. Policy issues and options are suggested throughout the book, with a final chapter dealing with policy issues and options.
Marked throughout by intelligent analysis and impressive scholarship, The Over-Forty Society confronts head-on an issue that promises to dominate Canada's social agenda for decades to come.
