Federal Public Policy on Aging Since 1960: An Annotated Bibliography
Greenwood Press, 1987 - Reference - 127 pages
This bibliography on federal policy on aging deals not only with official actions taken by government but also with the issues that cause such actions to be taken or, at least, proposed. Dealing with a period beginning with 1960, when public support of national action on social insurance and other aging-related matters was mounting, this bibliography's entries cover the years through early 1986, taking due note of the contemporary wave of analyses protesting perceived inequities in social security and medicare provisions. The 162 entries in Part One annotate book-length or other evaluations declaring the failure, partial success, or considerable achievement of federal action that intended to make life better for older Americans. In addition to global appraisals, Part One offers entries dealing with key principles in the making of federal policy on aging. The 589 entries that comprise Part Two provide a comprehensive sampling of the policies, programs, and issues of importance in the study of aging and older Americans.Among the issues related to federal public policy on aging that are covered are: income and retirement policy, health and long-term care, housing, services, consumer issues, discrimination, education, empowerment, family policy, intergenerational concerns, minorities, research, rural programs, training, and women. An appendix dealing with sources of additional information and author and subject indexes complete this volume. This important new bibliography adds to our knowledge of sources for the study of federal policy-making and the elderly.
