Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of contributors, ancient authors and subject terms that are mentioned in the book titled The Demographic Challenge: A Handbook about Japan. The Handbook serves a double purpose. (1) It presents relevant issues e.g., age, gender, fertility, family size, care for the elderly, decline of the labour force-in the light of a variety of theories and methods, thus contributing to cross-fertilising discussions. (2) It provides an exhaustive description of Japan's demographic change and its implications in a way that reveals both the commonalities Japan shares with other advanced industrialised countries and the differences that set it apart. Drawing on the expertise of specialists in various disciplines, the book presents a comprehensive view of Japan's demographic challenge.

Keywords: Japan's demographic challenge; labour force
