Overview

Making Population Geography is a lively account of the intellectual history of population geography, arguing that, while population geography may drift in and out of fashion, it must continue to supplement its demographic approach with a renewed emphasis on cultural and political accounts of compelling population topics, such as HIV-AIDS, sex trafficking, teen pregnancy, citizenship and global ageing, in order for it to shed light on contemporary society.

Making Population Geography draws both on the writings of those like Wilbur Zelinsky and Pat Gober who were at the very epicentre of spatial science in the 1960s and those like Michael Brown and Yvonne Underhill-Sem whose post-punk introspections of method, content and purpose, now push the field in new directions. Using a wide range of case studies, contemporary examples and current research, the book links the rise and fall of the key concepts in population geography to the changing social and economic context and to geographys turn towards social theory.

Referencing the authors classroom experiences both in the US and the UK, Making Population Geography will appeal to students studying geography, population issues and the development of critical scholarship.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book provides an accessible understanding of how and why population geography has developed as it has, and convincingly demonstrates the relevance and need for the subject in the early part of the twenty-first century.

Population, Space and Place

"Each chapter is clearly structured and contains useful illustrative material ... This book should be required reading for all undergraduates and school students, so that they might better understand some of the major processes at work that will profoundly affect their own lives in the coming decades, whether this is ageing populations, people trafficking, migration policies, emerging diseases, fertility control, resource pressure and so on."

Geography

"Making Population Geography is well crafted for those interested in both gaining rapid exposure to depth and breadth of population geography research and receiving a very current assessment of the field's potential and import."

Samuel M. Otterstrom, The Professional Geographer, 60:1, 2008
