Chapters focus on demographic trends, sociocultural contexts, and policy implications. Nations selected as case studies include: the Peoples Republic of China, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States.The editors and contributors call attention to the varied trajectories and effects of population aging in culturally diverse societies that are often at different stages or on different paths of economic development.

Such analyses bring into sharper focus those conditions that are unique, or similar, and emphasize the ways in which cultural stereotypes of aging and the elderly complicate our understanding of the effects of world-wide population aging.
