Présentation de l'éditeur

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, case study examples and a full index.

This text will be widely used as the standard and most up-to-date text on population and society for courses in the social sciences.
