This book is an up-to-date and indispensable tool for teachers, researchers, and all others involved in demography. Edited by three well-known experts, this volume combines essays prepared by outstanding specialists in all important areas of the field. It treats not only the materials and the methods of demography, but also summarizes demographic treatises and textbooks in countries of the world. Truly impressive! -Sylvia T. Wargon, Senior Research Analyst, Statistics Canada Demography: Analysis and Synthesis is a comprehensive collection of methodological, theoretical and practical chapters on determinants of population change. In a highly meaningful way it also combines demographic insight with wider themes from neighboring disciplines. It is an excellent reading for those interested in the social repercussions of population change, and a work of reference and a tool for teaching in demography. -Pekka Martikainen, Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, University of Helsinki, Finland Jointly the four volumes of Demography: Analysis and Synthesis represents the most complete and up-to-date analysis to appear in print of theory and methods central to the core of demographic science. At the same time these volumes represent the most exhaustive synthesis of demography with the many directly and indirectly related fields of knowledge (health-care, migration, integration, history, population policy, etc.) of importance to population studies. This work covers every major theme of demography in its broadest application. It is a truly outstanding achievement and an indispensable source of knowledge for the specialist as well as for the informed lay reader. -Charles Westin, Professor of Migration and Ethnicity Studies, Stockholm University These volumes bring together accessible research findings from scientists working at the cutting edge of demography, review articles by scholars with global credentials, and fundamental reflections on theoretical and ethical issues in population research, to demonstrate the vitality of European demography today. For scholars anywhere in the world, more than a hundred chapters span the entire spectrum of demography. These chapters provide not only exhaustive bibliographies rich in references to European research not always cited in U.S. sources, but also glimpses of demographic analysis rooted in data from European and other counties, and of the best European minds behind this work. The collection offers an important counter-weight to the mass of research generated by and about demography in the United States, and will be of great value in maintaining an international perspective on how we do demography as well as on the populations that demographers study. -Elwood Carlson, Director, Center for Demography and Population Health Florida State University
