Front Cover
Springer Publishing Company, 1994 - Social Science - 331 pages
"Published in cooperation with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), this volume contains the results of a national study intended to better our understanding of the many linkages between generations in American society. This study, undertaken by eminent researchers in gerontology, unveiled a complex set of attitudes and behaviors - hidden connections - between different age groups in our society, including family relationships, formal volunteering and informal help, and other types of intergenerational transfers. This volume will be of interest to researchers, policy makers, and students in gerontology, political science, and family studies."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
