Age Integration and the Lives of Older People.
Riley, Matilda White; Riley, John W., Jr.
Gerontologist, v34 n1 p110-15 Feb 1994
Argues that currently age-differentiated society will give way to age-integrated one; that age will lose its power to constrain people's entry, exist, and performance in such basic social institutions as education, work, and retirement. Sees revolutionary changes toward age integration as needed to reduce structural lag in which dynamism of human aging is outpacing dynamism of structural change. (Author/NB)
