It points out the important role of individual behaviours, societal conditions and public policies for determining the health of older people today - and in the future. The contributors explore: the influence of age and ethnicity on health and behaviour- coping with chronic illness and disability- the effect of stress on illness- disease prevention and health promotion- and the implications for public policy.
