Description of Population: An Introduction to Concepts and Issues, 13th Edition:
Any class in Population/Demography is a lot more interesting when you are using this book. POPULATION does more than give you information; it also shows you how to put it into practice. From the debates over how to manage population growth in some countries, and aging populations in others, to the issues of how amazingly different the world is when people are living in urban areas with considerable control over their own mortality and fertility, POPULATION helps you understand how the world really works and how population dynamics relate to socio-economic transitions and sustainable development. You’ll find compelling writing, intriguing essays and built-in study aids that help you review and prepare for tests — while also equipping you for the rest of your life on this planet.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
