Summary

This book is the first in a series on perspectives on individual and population aging. Emphasis is placed on the social patterns and institutions, and policy issues which arise from demographic aging in the Canadian context. A variety of topics are covered in the text. The general theme that emerges from the selected review of the available evidence presented in this volume is that scare imagery or siege mentality have no role in the discussions of this topic and may well create further problems rather than solutions. The book is written in a style that does not require any particular expertise.

Résumé

Ce livre représente un premier effort dans une série de perspectives sur le vieillissement de la population aux niveaux collectif et personnel. L'auteur se concentre sur les différents modes de vie et les institutions, ainsi que sur les questions politiques engendrées par le vieillissement démographique dans un contexte canadien. Le texte contient une multitude de sujets. Le thème principal qui ressort d'une revision sommaire des faits présentés et que l'on doit s'abstenir d'avoir recours aux tactiques alarmistes ou à une mentalité de siège lorsqu'on se prête à une discussion sur le vieillissement. Une telle stratégie pourrait compliquer le problème au lieu de le solutionner. Ce livre est à la portée de tous.
