Additional Information

Ethics, Aging and Society...is the first major work in ten years to critically address issues and methodologies in aging and ethics...This well-organized volume begins theoretically and offers new ways of thinking about ethics that can handle the complexities and realities of aging in particular social contexts."--Choice

This new research-based book, by experts in the field of ethics, is excellent and much-needed...I challenge you to consider reading this book and seeing all the ways in which you might be forced to rethink things that most of us take as given for ethics and aging. I know you will not be disappointed and I guarantee you will end up thinking long and hard about personal and professional decisions you may have made as well as your assumptions about aging in America."--CFLE Network Newsletter (National Council on Family Relations)

This is a book that should be required reading for all involved in the ethical provision of services to the aging on any level, as well as for policy makers and administrators in positions of influence over the lives of older patients."--PsycCRITIQUES

...the authors' application of feminist ethics to frail elders rings true to both my clinical experience working with frail elders, and my research experience trying to understand their quality of life concerns...there were true gems of ideas [in this book] that illuminated the limitations of the dominant paradigm of autonomy in bioethics. [The authors] make a compelling critique of end-of-life care."--GeriPal: A Geriatrics and Palliative Care Blog

This book presents second generation issues in ethics, aging, and society by presenting critical outcomes that arise when ethics is applied to the practical concerns that occur in day-to-day elder care. The first volume in over 10 years to address ethics and gerontology, it is unparalleled in its comprehensiveness and integration of well-developed philosophical arguments with empirical research, humanistic scholarship, and insights gained from practical experience.

This book challenges the tried and true approaches to ethical issues in aging and opens avenues for creative problem-solving. The authors' diverse backgrounds bring the advantages of both interdisciplinary scholarship and practical experience to this comprehensive textbook. It is an essential resource for those interested in, and working with, older people, from upper-level undergraduate students and graduate-division students, to gerontology practitioners in training.

Key Features:

  • Presents the first major work in over 10 years to integrate the disciplines of ethics and aging
  • Includes case studies derived from day-to-day practice
  • Addresses individual/clinical ethics in health and long-term care and ethical issues raised by public policy, cultural norms and social attitudes
  • Examines such critical issues as Alzheimer's disease, long-term care, ageism, public policy, anti-aging medicine, elder abuse, and natural disasters
  • Explores new directions in ethical and social philosophy as they pertain to gerontology and care

This book is a very good book. It outlined ethics, specifically elderly issues. Death, dying, ethical care, it covers it all. It was a current account of the struggles we are facing today with elderly care. I would highly recommend this book to health care professionals or people who care for the elderly.
This is ridiculous. The book is so highlighted that I can hardly read "my version" of it. And I got to pay $56.00 for it???? You had a 4.7 rating! Please send me a new one that "isn't" all marked up.
Great price
