This compact and accessible text provides a comprehensive, issue-oriented introduction to population geography. After grounding students in the fundamentals, K. Bruce Newbold then explains the tools and techniques commonly used to describe and understand population concepts using real-world issues and events. Drawing on both US and international cases, he explores such pressing concerns as HIV/AIDS, international migration, fertility, mortality, resource scarcity, and conflict. Every chapter includes methods and focus sections, as well as study questions, to provide a more in-depth discussion of the ideas and concepts developed in the book. In addition, a wide array of maps, tables, and figures illustrates and enhances the cases. Newbold highlights the geographical perspectivea€”with its ability to provide powerful insights and bridge disparate issuesa€”by emphasizing the role of space and place, location, regional differences, and diffusion. Arguing that an understanding of population is essential to prepare for the future, this cogent text will provide upper-division undergraduates with a thorough grasp of the field.of Economic Research, Working Paper (October 2009), http://cid.bcrp.gob.pe/ biblio/ Papers/NBER/2009/Octubre/w15391.pdf (accessed 15 May 2013). ...
