Population Aging: The Transformation of Societies presents an overview and international comparison of the causes, consequences and policy implications of one of the major processes of change in contemporary societies. It provides a foundation for understanding and reflecting on key demographic and social trends, together with related theoretical and policy frameworks that are important in explaining changes and designing informed responses. With particular reference to countries that have the oldest or largest aged populations, the book presents a synthesis of research on population aging, new analyses of trends and a discussion of the major social policy strategies.

Key topics include the new demography of aging, population health, family change, the Third Age, international policy concepts and strategies, and comparisons of countries - such as in terms of the relative risks they face from population aging and their resilience as changes occur. Overall, the book presents a broad interdisciplinary perspective on the determinants and consequences of population aging.

The book is written for an international audience of policy makers, educators and practitioners in health and welfare, together with students in the social sciences and health sciences. It provides an accessible and academically informed exposition of the field for people engaging with issues arising from population aging in their own country.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Rowland has been dealing with the issue of population ageing for more than 30 years ... [His] latest contribution, Population Aging: The Transformation of Societies, examines the causes and consequences of population ageing across the countries that have the oldest or largest aged populations in Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia. This international comparison allows him to draw cogent conclusions about the implications of population ageing for different societies given the relative risks they face from population ageing and their resilience as changes occur. The book is well written and would suit a variety of readers ranging from policy-makers, educators and practitioners in health and welfare engaging with issues arising from population ageing in countries across the world, to students in the social and health sciences. It is also easily accessible to any lay reader who would benefit from its accessible exposition of the issues."

From the review by D. Cullen in Australasian Journal on Ageing, Volume 32, No 1, March 2013
