  1. In societies where there is differentiation among the "old age category," there will be a presence of death-hastening behavior (53).Glascock, Anthony P. - Decrepitude and death-hastening: the nature of old age in third world societies, 1982 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the status and treatment of the elderly in non-industrial societies. Associations are found between social complexity, subsistence type, and the status and treatment of the elderly.

  8. "If explicit definitions of old age can be determined…these definitions should cluster into a limited number of definitional categories" (19).Glascock, Anthony P. - Social asset or social burden: treatment of the aged in non-industrial societies, 1981 - 1 Variables

    This article uses cross-cultural methodology to examine the classification and treatment of the aged. Results suggest that the combination of supportive/unsupportive treatment is associated with the intact/decrepit age grouping.

  10. The elderly defined as "decrepit" will have their deaths hastened while the elderly defined as "intact" will be supported (407).Glascock, Anthony P. - The myth of the golden isle: old age in pre-industrial societies, 1987 - 2 Variables

    This study discusses the distribution of the treatment of the aged across a sample of pre-industrial societies. Data illustrate that the elderly were treated in a non-supportive or death-hastening manner in the majority of societies, dispelling the notion that a golden age/isle existed in pre-industrial societies in which the elderly were revered and supported. Results also suggest a relationship between age and treatment of the elderly and climate, social, and subsistence variables and the treatment of the aged.
