Focus of this book is with the rural aged, nationally and internationally. This group is thought to, because of age and place, 'lag behind' in a modernizing or modern society, causing them to be ignored in social scientific literature. The book builds a foundation of knowledge about a population which relatively little is known. In addition the information about the elderly will serve as a test of a major thesis in sociology and anthropology concerning the adaptation of groups to social change.
