About this item

Asia is the largest and most populous continent in the world. Its current population of around 4.3 billion accounts for close to 60 percent of the world’s total. It is also an extremely diverse continent with people living in hugely varied natural environments. Many Asian countries have their own distinctive histories, cultural traditions, religious beliefs and radically different political systems, and they have pursued markedly different routes to development. For these reasons Asian populations represent a striking array of demographic characteristics and stages of demographic transition.

This handbook will provide a comprehensive study of population changes in Asia and related theoretical issues through systematically examining demographic transitions on the continent, their considerable variations and their relationships with a wide range of social, economic, political and cultural factors. The sections will cover:

  • Population Studies and Demographic Data Sources

  • Family Planning and Fertility Decline

  • Mortality Decline

  • Population Distribution and Migration

  • Marriage and Family

  • Demographic Transition in Asia

  • Population, Society and Environment

The book will provide a key reference about Asian demography for academics, students, policy makers, political commentators, entrepreneurs and anyone who is interested in population changes in Asia.
