This book is an important and timely look at issues of ethics in aging. It reflects the complexity of these questions, but develops them in relation to a single general theme: that of the involvement of the elderly in the design of social policy and the research which affects them. Moral problems involving the elderly are many-faceted. Accurate understanding and social response demand some integration of experience, sensibility, and knowledge provided by different perspectives. Ethics and Aging incorporates viewpoints from gerontology, philosophy, law, theology, sociology, psychology, medicine, nursing, and economics.

An interesting collection of essays that should appeal especially to those involved in the provision of care for aged people, or in the analysis of social policy, or in the development of ethical concepts which seem relevant in the modern hospital environment. -- Sidney Sax * Bioethics *
It is a very useful aid for professionals in gerontology or in social work, for ethicists, ministers of religion, and for all who are connected with the formation of our perceptions on this most valuable and often most neglected segment of our society. -- Bela I. Somfai * Journal of Religious Gerontology *
A richness of insights that only an interdisciplinary approach can give. -- Helga Kuhse * Bioethic News *
