Summary
This book provides an interdisciplinary overview of common and unique features of elderly men and how they age. The editors examine cultural, psychological, physical, and economic factors that affect the quality of life for older men. They clearly illustrate the diversity within this population, highlighting ethnicity, religion, and important sociodemographic variables. Elderly men are described as a minority in need of critical examination to understand more fully this "forgotten population." Students and practitioners in the fields of social work and gerontology will find this text's practical application very appealing
