"A systematic appraisal of the field of demography is long overdue. It has been almost five decades since Philip Hauser and Otis Dudley Duncan published their classic The Study of Populaiton. The volume naturally covers the latest developments in time-honored fields such as age and sex, marriage and family, mortality, fertility, and both internal and international migration. It also inlcudes new material on subjects that did not even exist at the time of the last survey, including biodemography, anthropological demography, and political demography. This comprehensive review of 50 years of progress in theoretical and empirical knowledge confirms that demography is indeed a cumulative science." (Douglas S. Massey, Princeton)
"The Handbook of Population is a worthy successor to the 1959 publication of The Study of Population edited by Hauser and Duncan. The editors did a remarkable job of putting together an excellent outline that covers every topic within Demography. The editors did an even more remarkable job in gathering such talented scholars to write each chapter. Together they mesh into what will soon become our 'bible.' It should be in every college library and should be on every demographer's desk." (Leon Bouvier, Old Dominion University)
