Rezensionen
'The world is aging rapidly as declining birth rates, improved healthcare and greater longevity affect all the developed countries, and increasingly those in the global South. Yet as 'Aging, work and society' makes clear, governments, businesses and communities have done little to date to address the major implications that flow from pressure on healthcare systems, narrowing dependency ratios - with fewer working age adults needing to support ever growing older people- or the balance to be struck between keeping older people at work for longer without denying younger people opportunities for enhancement. In an impressive overview of the issues to be addressed, drawing on a wide range of intellectual disciplines, this handbook will make a major contribution to filling an evidence gap, and will surely stimulate new research to address the questions it raises' Alan Tuckett President of the International Council for Adult Education and Honorary Professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen
