Carroll L. Estes, PhD
My current research is on Social Security and Medicare policy, health reform, long tern care, and elder women's economic and health security. Credited as a founding scholar of the "political economy of aging" and "critical gerontology." I have authored and co-authored 8 books including: The Aging Enterprise (1979), Social Policy and Aging (2001), Social Theory, Social Policy and Ageing (2003), and co-authored Social Insurance and Social Justice (2009). My book, Long Term Care Crisis, was named one of the nation's Most Important Books (Choice Magazine, 1994). The edited volumes, The Nation's Health (7th ed., 2005) with Philip Lee and Health Policy (6th ed., forthcoming 2012) with Charlene Harrington, have been adopted in 400 Schools of Medicine and Nursing.
