The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2013 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:
E. Helen Berry Professor, Assistant Department Head Department of Sociology, Social Work & Anthropology Glasgow, Nina & Berry, E. Helen (Eds.). 2013. Rural Aging in 21st Century America (Understanding Population Trends and Processes, Vol. 7). New York, NY: Springer.
This book investigates sociological, demographic and geographic aspects of aging in rural and nonmetropolitan areas of the United States. The authors address unique features of rural aging across economic, racial/ethnic, migration and other structures and patterns, all with a focus on debunking myths about rural aging and to emphasize opportunities and challenges that rural places and older people experience.
