The collection of chapters in the Handbook of Population and Family Economics and their organization reflect the most recent developments in economics pertaining to population issues and the family. The rationale, contents, and organization of the Handbook evolve from three premises. First, the family is the main arena in which population outcomes are forged. Second, there are important interactions and significant causal links across all demographic phenomena. Third, the study of the size, composition, and growth of a population can benefit from the application of economic methodology and tools. The diversity and depth of the work reviewed and presented in the Handbook conveys both the progress that has been made by economists in understanding the forces shaping population processes, including the behavior of families, and the many questions, empirical and theoretical, that still remain.

"...The Editors and contributors need to be congratulated for presenting such an excellent publication. This is very much a publication that should be on the shelf of all those interested in population and family economics. ...I anxiously await volume 1C(?), although given the scope and depth if the two current volumes, it is difficult to imagine what further topics need to be surveyed." The Economic Journal ...the Handbook provides and ideal entry point for an economist or economics graduate student looking for authoratative surveys of an important branch of economics. ... "Ambitious and enormously useful project. ... Rosenzweig and Stark have recruited an outstanding group of economists to write these surveys - virtually all have made important contributions to the areas they survey. ..." Journal of Economic Literature For those who are interested in one or more of the special branches of economic demography every paper contains a huge amount of well-chosen references.
