Anthropological and Historical Studies in Critical Demography

Edited by Simon Szreter, Hania Sholkamy, and A. Dharmalingam

International Studies in Demography

  • Expounds and exemplifies a new approach, that of critical reflexive demography, to studies of population processes.
  • Focused interdisciplinarity uses the combined insights of a variety of humanities disciplines to ineterrogate a common preoccupation in population studies.
  • Each chapter provides an accessible and self-contained study, re-evaluating taken-for-granted categories in demography by insisting on the relevance and importance of context.
  • Easy-to-read chapters are particularly useful for teaching, even in introductory courses in demography for non-specialist students.
