About this item

First published in 1997. Considerable research has been done to identify neighbourhood influences on children’s affective states, motivation, and behaviour. This population, along with the elderly, are the nation’s largest dependent groups. In contrast, little research has been done to determine what impact living among poor neighbours has upon older Americans, specifically upon their psychological well-being and neighbourhood satisfaction. In this study the author has sought out to explore this deficit, using a sociological standpoint to examine quality-of-life issues relevant to elderly inner-city residents. This title will be of interest to students of sociology and urban studies.
