       "population" was developed and modified over the course of
       the twentieth century, mirroring the political, social, 
       and cultural situations and aspirations of different 
       societies. This growing field adapted itself to specific 
       policy concerns and was therefore never apolitical, 
       despite the protestations of practitioners that demography
       was "natural." Demographics were transformed into public 
       policies that shaped family planning, population growth, 
       medical practice, and environmental conservation. While 
       covering a variety of regions and time periods, the essays
       in this book share an interest in the transnational 
       dynamics of emerging demographic discourses and practices.
       Together, they present a global picture of the history of 
       demographic knowledge.
