Key features: Explores new directions in ethical and social philosophy in connection with gerontology Enriched with case studies that are derived from day-to-day practice Ranges from individual/clinical ethics in health and long-term care to ethical issues raised by public policy, cultural norms, and social attitudes The first major work in a more than a decade that brings together complex elements at the heart of ethical thinking
