I remember the early days where I used to go through the old book ¿The Methods and Materials of Demography¿ while studying at the Cairo Demographic Center in the early 90s of last century. The new version is an innovative and invaluable addition to the fundamental books in the field. I highly recommend this book for all demographers worldwide.Was this review helpful?

This book is the 21st century's 'bible' of demography. It is a complete update of the original edition issued in the 1970s and has many added features, including the most comprehensive glossary of demographic terms I have seen. It even includes a highly usable 'demography timeline' that shows the dates of important demographic events and publications. It is thorough, accurate, and highly readable, with many examples. Indispensible for professionals and students, this book is likely to surpass the original edition as a classic in the field.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
