Editor Sousa (health sciences, U. of Aveiro, Portugal) has collected research articles from fellow Portuguese academics in the fields of psychology, education, technology and health sciences to examine the dynamics of aging families, and how increased life expectancies have created new challenges and themes in everyday life. These articles cover such issues as material inheritance, the quality of life for elderly family members with chronic illnesses and the reduction of responsibilities among elderly men in family situations. An emphasis upon statistical data makes these studies more suited to students and scholars than general audiences. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
