About this title:
Book Description: Population cycles are fundamental to human demography and several mathematical techniques are available for analysing the wealth of information that is contained in parish registers. This book shows how such a novel approach to the study of human populations can provide an insight into mortality patterns in past societies and the ways in which they are subtly influenced by levels of nutrition and by cyclical epidemics of lethal infectious diseases. All those interested in the effects of diet and disease on human population cycles will find this book useful.
