This book is a useful treatise on the technical and substantive aspects of ageing that highlights many hitherto unexplored areas. Besides, it also emphasises many areas that require policy intervention. In reiterating the need for graceful ageing, it suggests the scope for initiatives from non-government organisations (NGOs) and activists.
The book presents a comprehensive analysis (with the help of tons of data and mind-boggling tables and charts) of the causes and consequences of ageing and possible solutions of the problems thrown up by this phenomenon of the rapidly growing population of the aged in India. The book admirably explains how a rapid and spectacular transition from high to relatively low mortality and fertility rates has fundamentally altered the age composition of India`s population.
This useful book by a demographer at kolkata university provides a comprehensive description on demographic trends in Asia and implications of aging for development.
