About the Book

Population and Society Essential Readings, Second Edition, provide a broad selection of classic and contemporary works in the study of human population and society. Integrating a unique global perspective throughout, the text examines the foundational principles and theories of demography before addressing such topics as the relationship between individual action and demographic phenomena; principles of aging composition; nuptiality and family processes; fertility, mortality, and migration; environmental issues; and population policy concerns. Introductory overviews for each of the ten sections establish common underlying themes and give students a contextual framework for the readings that follow. With twenty-three new readings by Canadian and international scholars and a fully updated pedagogical program, this comprehensive collection is an essential resource for studying population and society.

Readership : Population and Society, second edition, is a core text for second- and third-year university students studying population and society and demography in sociology departments at Canadian universities. There is potential for the text to serve as a supplement to any introductory textbook on population.
