About this book

Today our planet is home to 6.8 billion people. By the year 2050, the global population will have grown to 9 billion.

Yet the problems that will come with this massive expansion are not universal. Many developing nations will experience high demographic growth, while industrialized countries will have to deal with aging and eventually shrinking populations, as well as with more immigration. This title offers a perspective on the causes and effects of rapid population change.

Media reviews
Munz and Reiterer are German social scientists, and their compact new review of the basics of global population has two features that recommend it in comparison to the huge existing collection of similar texts. First, as Europeans, they write from a truly global perspective without the inordinate concentration on US empirical examples found in most books on population by US authors. Second, though most introductory surveys of world population concentrate on the impact of changing vital rates (births and deaths), both the title and content of this book emphasize the growing importance of both internal and international migration as key components of population change in today's world. The book is well suited for library collections on population worldwide and offers a more international perspective for students in US universities. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All undergraduate collections. -- E. Carlson CHOICE 201011
