The Care of Older People:
  England and Japan, A Comparative Study
Mayumi Hayashi
 Across the globe, populations aregetting older. Britain and Japanare examples of two rapidly ageingsocieties, and their governments faceincreasing challenges in how to deal with this situation. Based on extensivearchival research and oral testimony,Hayashi sets policy and practice atthe national, regional and local levelsin their historical contexts, offering aunique comparison of the evolutionof modern residential care in Englandand Japan.
‘Hayashi has written the rst 
comparative study of the urgent issueof the residential care of older peoplein Britain and Japan. ... she valuablydispels the deeply entrenched belief that older people are much more respected and cared for in Asian countries such as Japan, than in western countries suchas Britain.’
