From the dust jacket flap, "…the indispensable work for historians, sociologists, population experts, and scholars of developing countries. It is the first national population history to provide basic demographic information over a period of 300 years in any country. As a result, arguments about the relative importance of fertility and mortality changes in engendering growth are settled, and the interconnection between economic changes and population growth can be examined effectively for the first time."
