Population Geography

Second Edition

May 1990 | 334 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The Second Edition of this popular and widely acclaimed undergraduate text has been completely rewritten and extended to incorporate the most modern perspectives. Within population geography, there has been increasing concentration on population dynamics, and this text caters specifically for this exciting emphasis. It concentrates on evolving patterns of fertility, mortality and migration, the spatial and temporal processes that fashion them, and the resultant problems and remedial policies. A major theme is the spatial expression of cause-and-effect links between demographic change and the socioeconomic transformation of societies. A particular strength is the very wide range of case studies drawn from all parts of the developed and less developed world.
