Population and Society brings together twenty-six classic and contemporary published works that are considered to be foundational reading for the study of human population and society.

The book is divided into ten sections with concise introductory overviews by the editor, Frank Trovato. Section one examines the foundational principles of demography and its nature as a multidisciplinary field. Section two addresses the relationship between individual action and demographic phenomena. Sections three and four cover the history of the human population and principles of age composition. Section five focuses on nuptiality and family processes. Sections six, seven, and eight cover the three central variables of demography: fertility, mortality, and migration. Issues pertaining to population and its relationship to environment and resources are presented in Section nine, while the final section is devoted to population policy concerns.

Offering an international perspective, this collection is ideal for use in a variety of related studies: socioeconomic development and change; methods and models; social structure and change; aging and gerontology; human diversity; globalization; regionalism; human ecology; and geography.

About the Author:


Frank Trovato has taught demography and population studies at the University of Alberta since his appointment in 1983. He is the editor of Canadian Studies in Population, the official journal of the Canadian Population Society (he is also a past president) and a past director of the Population Research Laboratory (PRL) at the University of Alberta.

Review:

"This is an incredible collection of essays that provides a nice introduction to the field of demography." --Zheng Wu, University of Victoria

"This new edition will stand the test of time. These are appropriately entitled 'essential readings' for students of the twenty-first century. The editor's introductions place the readings in context and bring unity to the collection, profiting from an author who has himself written widely and reached many students over the years." --Roderic Beaujot, University of Western Ontario
