This volume focuses on fertility and family transitions in selected Third World countries, exploring critical aspects of the relationship between population and development. The essays examine population processes as they unfold and develop over time, highlighting the need to go beyond economic explanations and identifying the priorities among social structural and cultural factors. Several of the contributors discuss the changing roles of women and the family, which provides an important context for understanding demographic transitions. The book concludes with an examination of the implications of fertility and family patterns now emerging in Third World countries in the context of population planning and development policies.
