There is a paucity of information to help guide mental health practitioners explore the ways that racism influences a client?s well being (Harrell, 2000). The stress caused by racism has been documented to affect the psychological well being of minorities (Harrell, 2000, Clark, Anderson, Clark, & Williams, 1999). The majority of the research involving race related stress has focused almost exclusively on African Americans. Despite the growing Latino population in the United States, there is substantially less research examining their perceived discriminatory experiences (Araujo & Borrell, 2006). Although the elderly subgroup is a population that has been largely ignored in the research with Latinos, it has been established that they are at a high risk for multiple psychological and physical ailments (Tran, Fitzpatrick, Berg, & Wright, 1996, Black, Markides, & Miller, 1998, Canabal & Quiles, 1995, Gonzalez, Haan, & Hinton, 2001, Harris, Eastman, Cowie, Flegal, & Eberhardt, 1999). This work investigated factors that impact the relationship between race related stress and quality of life of first generation immigrant Latino elders.

Aging, Health, and Longevity in the Mexican-Origin Population creates a foundation for an interdisciplinary discussion of the trajectory of disability and long-term care for older people of Mexican-origin from a bi-national perspective. Although the literature on Latino elders in the United States is growing, few of these studies or publications offer the breadth and depth contained in this book.

The population of the United States, like that of most other nations, will age rapidly well into the 21st century. By 2025, at least one-fifth of the population in 15 countries in the Americas is to be age 60 or over. Additionally, as the result of high immigration and fertility rates, as well as improvements in life expectancy, the United States Census Bureau projects that by 2050, the total number of non-Hispanic white aged 65 and over will more than triple, and the number of Hispanics in this age bracket will increase eleven fold. Despite these demographic facts, there is a significant dearth of information about the unique strengths and characteristics that underrepresented minority possess and experience as they age. Further examination of these understudied groups, especially among Hispanics - now the nation's largest minority group - offers the possibility to promote healthy aging for the entire nation. In this unique volume, contributions provide initial information on numerous factors that affect the health security of Mexican-origin families and individuals as they face the burdens of decline in health status and caring for children and the elderly simultaneously, including health issues before and after immigration. Also included is material addressing important issues related to the contemporary political debate on immigration and healthcare reform in the United States and Mexico. In the coming decades, collections such as this will be critical to develop a better understanding of how immigration from Latin America, Asia and Africa to the United States produces health disparities in our aging population.
