This two-volume set provides a review and analysis of the current state of knowledge in the field of population studies. Articles are alphabetically arranged and include thematic and biographical entries. Representing a complete update and reworking of the 1982 International Encyclopedia of Population, this reference includes double the number of entries and much-expanded coverage of demographic topics in the core field and neighboring disciplines including the rapid demographic expansion in poor countries, low fertility rates and problems of old-age support, the AIDS epidemic and other infectious diseases, increased migration and refugee movements, women's equality and reproductive rights, and many other topics. Suitable for college courses in population studies, world economics, political science, economics, and world development. Includes ten maps and a statistical appendix.
This successor to Macmillan's "International Encyclopedia of Population" provides expanded, up-to-date coverage of demographic topics both in the core field and in neighboring disciplines. Designed to encompass the large-scale changes in emphasis and research directions in population studies during the last 20 years, topics covered include: rapid demographic expansion in poor countries, low fertility rates and problems of old-age support, the environmental impact of dense population; the press for expanded reproductive rights; and much more.
