Population Geography: Tools and Issues

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 2010 - Social Science - 309 pages
A second edition of this book is now available. This compact and accessible core text offers a comprehensive, issue-oriented introduction to population geography. Providing a set of functional tools and techniques for studying population geography, K. Bruce Newbold also explores real-world issues such as HIV/AIDS, international migration, fertility, mortality, resource scarcity, and conflict. Every chapter includes both methods and focus sections to provide a more in-depth discussion of the ideas and concepts presented in the text. Newbold highlights the geographical perspective with its ability to provide powerful insights and bridge disparate issues 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 fundamentals of the field."
