CARING FOR THE ELDERLY IN JAPAN AND THE U.S.: Practices and Policies, edited by Susan Orpett Long. Routledge: London, 2000. 358 pp., $100.

This book presents an array of papers on a broad range of elderly-care issues ranging from government policies, cultural constraints and care provision to dealing with dementia on an individual level. One can only hope that the progressive perspectives espoused here are incorporated into formulating and implementing elderly-care initiatives over the coming decades.
