Yayoi Saito, Reiko Abe Auestad and Kari Warness eds, Meeting the Challenges of Elder Care: Japan and Norway
Price: $109.95

Based on comparative and collaborative studies of Japanese and Norwegian specialists, the book revolves around the critical analysis of rationality of care with the empirical examination of care services in the two countries. Six researchers argue that elder care is not simply the act of labor but that of love and feelings and take up such aspects of care as home help, new public management and social enterprise. Predicated on the historical experience and contemporary reality of elderly care in both countries, the study confronts the commercial rationalization of care practices and explores their desirable forms.
