Challenges of an Aging Society: Ethical Dilemmas, Political Issues

JAMA. 2008;299(1):97-102. doi:10.1001/jama.2007.19

Challenges of an Aging Society: Ethical Dilemmas, Political Issues by Rachel A. Pruchno and Michael A. Smyer is a well-written book that covers important ethical and policy issues encountered in an aging society. It is based on presentations made at 2 conferences—“The Science and Ethics on Aging: End of Life” (2003) and “The Science and Ethics in Aging: Public Policy and Responsibility Across the Generations” (2004)—by scientists and ethicists with expertise in aging. Twenty-four individuals affiliated with multiple US universities have authored the chapters. According to the editors, “Aging in contemporary society requires ethical clarity from individuals, families and society at large. This volume reflects contemporary thoughts and practice at the intersection of ethics and aging.”
