Summary
  • "People are growing old in resource-dependent communities that were neither originally designed nor presently equipped to support an ageing population. This book provides cutting edge theoretical and empirical insights into the emergent dimension of rural population aging, to understand the diverse experiences of, and responses to, rural population ageing in the early 21st century. The book contextualising the conceptual foundations of resource frontier aging, and explores three central themes of rural population ageing, rural community development and rural voluntarism. By exploring the links among these three themes the book provides the conceptual and empirical foundations for the future agenda of rural ageing research. This timely contribution contains 15 original chapters by leading international experts from Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, and Norway."--
