One of the few comprehensive and relatively balanced books on this topic

More than worth reading if you are at all interested in aging policy.

Gives a really good solid foundation in what you need to know about the history and implications of aging and related policy.

Doesn't get caught up in current (2005) politics and therefore stands the test of time to a large extent by focusing on larger trends and nodes of change.

Discusses population dynamics, Medicare, Medicaid, Senior housing, health, taxes, minorities- just about everything it should!

You will undoubtedly be better informed about aging policy and politics by reading this book.

This is NOT the 2nd edition of the New Politics of Old Age Policy. It's a good book with very interesting articles but my course required the second edition, not the first. Amazon has this listed as the 2nd.

They do, however, have a great return policy so that made returning / getting refunded quite easy.

I am reading this book for my GERO 540 class at USC. I love it! The book is an easy read and it's written in an easy to understand format that draws the reader in and actually makes your reading assignment F-U-N!

Book arrived on time and in good condition. This resource was helpful in assisting me in conducting research geared towards services of the older population. I would recommend this book to others.
