From Elder to Ancestor: Old Age, Death and Inheritance in Modern Korea. This insightful account of the treatment and provision for an ageing population in South Korea is based on intensive fieldwork in the county of Puan. The structure of the book revolves around an analysis of the roles of the individual and family, including issues such as theory and practice of residence and retirement; village funerals; recent transformations in Korean mortuary practices; inheritance and the Korean family; Korea's looming ageing population crisis; and filial piety and the structural construction of kin responsibilities. With glossary, bibliography and index.
