Population and Society is an undergraduate introduction to population that explains the latest shifts in population studies. The text provides a detailed and completely accessible overview that:

- situates demographic aspects of population - births, deaths, migration, disease - within the context of broader social impacts, like work, health and wealth inequalities;

- uses illustrative examples from the developed and developing world, avoiding a distinct UK, European or "Western" bias;

- is illustrated throughout with pedagogic features, like chapter opening summaries, concluding list of key terms, suggestions for further readings, case study examples ( "boxes "), and a glossary and 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.
