The Nature of Demography by Hervé Le Bras, translated by Godfrey Rogers from the original French publication in 2005 (La démographie, Paris: Odille Jacob), is about change, as demonstrated by the title of the introduction: ‘the dynamics of change in demography’ (p. 1). On the one hand, measuring, modelling and understanding demographic changes at the individual and population level are regarded. as central to the book.

Le Bras's appealing book also succeeds in enlarging the field of formal demography by including sections on migration, marriage, and economics. I heartily recommend The Nature of Demography to all who see demography an autonomous scientific discipline with a strong core of theory-rather than just a body of techniques, the application of general statistics to demographic data. It should be consulted regularly and seriously by anyone trying to use or develop demographic theory.

The Nature of Demography is a response to these enormous changes. Written by one of the world's leading demographers, this authoritative text offers a systematic and coherent overview of the fundamental ideas governing the study of present and future populations. The book covers formal models as well as the underlying logic and context of demographic reasoning. The text also illustrates recent data and new methodological developments.

The Nature of Demography (Hardback). Herve Le Bras (author). The first section of the book discusses measurements that involve a single individual, such as mortality and fertility; the second section moves from individual behaviors to population-level phenomena; and the third section looks at models involving individuals and social structures within the population, such as marriage and migration rates - topics not addressed. in such detail in any other demography text.

In The Nature of Demography, the eminent French demographer Hervé Le Bras presents an imaginative and compelling vision of what demography might become if it were to take seriously the scientific task of theory building and codification. Ranging across a wide array of substantive areas – mortality, fertility, marriage, migration, population projections, population and economic development, life-cycle economics and pensions, social mobility, settlement patterns, population density – Le Bras constructs simple (but not simplistic) mathematical models of population processes. The focus on process.

Rapid changes over the last twenty years have impacted every branch of demographic analysis, from birth rates and immigration, to marriage rates and aging. The Nature of Demography is a response to these enormous changes. Written by one of the world's leading demographers, this authoritative text offers a systematic and coherent overview of the fundamental ideas governing the study of present and future populations.

The first section of the book discusses measurements that involve a single individual, such as mortality and fertility; the second section moves from individual behaviors to population-level phenomena; and the third section looks at models involving individuals and social structures within the population, such as marriage and migration rates--topics not addressed in such detail in any other demography text.

Written for advanced undergraduates and experienced researchers, The Nature of Demography contains a wealth of material that will inspire innovative applications in the field.
