The study of the ways in which spatial variations in the distribution, composition, migration and growth of populations are related to nature of places is the domain of population Geography. A concern with spatial variation has been the geographer's distinctive contribution to population studies and comparision is frequently made with demographers, who are much more interested in patterns of birth, death and marriage, neglecting the influence of migration and spatial variations in general. A legion of literature, books and research papers have been produced about the various aspects of population geography.

In these two volumes entitled 'Population Geography' leading research papers pertaining to conceptual topical spatial, regional and case studies has been included. In all there are twenty nine lucidly written and adequately documented papers in this volume. The definition, scope, roots of population geography has been examined in the first three chapters. The next four papers present an account of the theories of population. A comparision of demography and population has been made in the eight paper while some of the methodological issues have been analysed in the tenth and eleventh chapter. The demographic attributes and regional studies have been systematically explored in papers from twelfth to twenty second. There are a few articles on population dynamics while the last few chapters examine the policies of population of the various countries.

The spatial patterns of population explored in the embodied papers of the volume are worth reading and have more than academic importance for those who are interested in the welfare of mankind and protection of environment. This book is recommended to teachers and students of geography and social sciences.

This book Migration Geography is designed to analyse the spatial patterns of male migration only because male migration is a sensitive indicator of economic development of a particular area. The aspects considered mainly are four flows of migration, i.e., rural-rural, rural-urban, urban-urban, urban-rural and duration of residence both in rural and urban areas. Duration of migrant's residence has drawn little attention of academic community. But this aspect has a great relevance in understanding the evolving migration linkage between different areas and such analysis is itself of great importance in comprehending in process of migration.

This book deals with the need and importance of spatial mobility. Mobility is product of the social, cultural economic, political or physical circumstances in which societies and individuals find themselves. It is a major symptom of social change. This process has a profound effect both upon the areas to which migrants have flowed and upon the areas from where they have come. This study is based on secondary sources of data and deals with the less developed state like Rajasthan. Through various quantitative techniques, econometric models are built, hypotheses are formulated and tested on the basis of which findings are analysed. The study is conducted at state level as well as at regional level for the years 1971 and 1981. Few pages as post-script on the basis of 1991 migration data are added in the book. The study highlights the causes of spatial mobility of population in Rajasthan, according to which there is need to reformulate the development policies of the state so that less developed areas could be developed and regional disparities could be developed and regional disparities could be removed.

This book is very useful for the planners and researchers on the basis of which planning and development models can be built.

The question of population has occupied attention of statesmen and philosophers since ancient times. Plato and Aristotle were interested in the question of population size in the context of a city - state. Mercantilist doctrine emphasized the economic, political and military advantages of a large and growing population and favoured various measures to stimulate population growth. Malthus reacted against mercantilist doctrine. According to him the population increases in arithmetic progression while the population increases in geometric progression. Thus, the power of the earth to produce subsistent for men.

Population theories since Malthus; Malthu's place in population; theories of population growth; Post-Malthian Theories; Biological theories of population; Family planning policies and strategies for developing countries; New population policy ; Population policy in India; Population research in India and many more topics are elaborately dealt in this book.
