Population and Society is an undergraduate introduction to population that explains the latest trends in population studies. The text provides a detailed and completely accessible overview that:
- situates demographic events - fertility, mortality and migration - within the context of broader social impacts and theorisations like social inequalities, individualisation and life course analysis
- uses global illustrative examples to demonstrate the importance of data and data interpretation in population studies
- is illustrated throughout with pedagogic features, like chapter opening summaries, suggestions for further readings and case study examples.
This text will be widely used as the standard and most up-to-date text on population and society for courses across the social sciences.
