Aging Policy and Politics in the Trump Era

Implications for Older Americans, 1st Edition

Edited by Edward Alan Miller, Pamela Nadash, and Michael K. Gusmano

(Routledge, 2018)

This comprehensive volume explores the ways in which Trump administration policies are likely to significantly undermine the social safety net for near-elderly and older Americans, including long-term care, housing, health care, and retirement. The authors also explore how the Trump administration might shape politics and political behavior through the policy changes made. The response of older voters, in upcoming elections, to efforts by the Trump administration and its Republican allies in Congress to draw back on the federal government’s commitment to programs and policies affecting them will shape the direction of aging policy and politics for years to come.

This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Aging & Social Policy.
