During the 20th Century, there was a wide dispersion of Chinese people throughout the world, as well as dramatic socio-political changes in China. These factors have strained traditional family norms and caused a re-examination of the role of elderly Chinese people. The volume contains a collection of scholarly papers addressing such topics as: community care, family support, one-child families, and social isolation.
