This text, dealing with particular themes in the field of human geography, provides a useful introduction to population geography. The book considers the two major themes of population growth and distribution and population migration and circulation. These themes are examined both generally and specifically through a series of case studies and exercises. The case studies are selected from developed regions of the world to provide the student with both a general knowledge of a broad field of study and a detailed knowledge of specific cases. The extensive bibliography includes both sources specifically referred to in the text and suggestions for further reading in the general field of study.
