STEVEN R. APPLEWHITE is an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at Arizona State University, Tempe. He is the author of Genetic Screening and Counseling: A Multidisciplinary Perspective as well as book chapters and monographs on the Hispanic elderly.

Review:

"Including contributors from western and southwestern states, this work emphasizes both the diversities and similarities among Hispanic elderly who live in distinct communities based on region, dialect, or origin. The volume consists of five parts. Part 1 offers chapters on crosscultural social work practice and on elderly Puerto Ricans in the US. The second section examines health status and health care utilization of elderly Hispanics in the Southwest. Part 3 covers group politics and income maintenance programs focusing on older Hispanics as a developing interest group. It discusses social legislation and the impact of aging policies on traditional support networks, and it concludes with a review of how work and income maintenance programs shape future trends and income prospects for Hispanic elderly. The fourth part examines the role of the elderly in extended families and provides an insightful discussion of barrio life, including natural support systems. This is followed by an ethnography of Hispanic aging, a discussion of death and dying in a rural Hispanic community, and a final chapter on marketing to Hispanics. Although ethnicity has been treated as the major analytic variable in many previous works on aging, e.g., Donald E. Gelfand's Aging: The Ethnic Factor, this is the first volume to deal exclusively with Hispanic elderly. The quality of the contributions is uniformly high. Academic libraries, community college level up."-Choice

"Fourteen essays provide insight into the problems of aging Hispanics; their health, incomes, relations with bureaucracy. Most interesting of all are cultural views of death and old age, and the natural support systems of family and barrio. Valuable for anyone concerned with the elderly, especially the growing population of older Hispanics."-Books of the Southwest
