'A comparative social survey on living conditions and behaviour of the
aged in Denmark, Great Britain and U.S.A.'- subtitle.
Through the last fifteen years important new territory has been conquered
in social gerontology in most of the countries of the Western
world. Social gerontology is, however, still at an early stage of development.
Most countries lack basic facts on many aspects of the life of elderly
people, and theoretical generalizations regarding the social factors in the
aging process are only beginning to be established.
The result is that a number of untested stereotypes and myths have
grown up round the elderly in Western countries.
