Book Series

To further support scholarship in spatial demography, we have worked with Springer Media to launch a book series focusing on this subject matter.

Spatial Demography Book Series:

Series Editors: F.M. Howell, J.R. Porter

This series explores the application of spatial science to demographic information, including the methods, theory, and applications to societal problems. It captures the rapidly expanding knowledge-base of how human behavior and social processes are both shaped by place and time as well as change localities themselves over time.

The books in this series examine both individuals as well as institutions and include all methodological, geographical, and topical research or treatments of the interaction between societies and place. It encompasses racial segregation, crime, urban sprawl, agricultural production, engagement in community life, migration, commuting, business location, technology, environmental quality, elections to public office, and other important societal phenomena.

This series adopts an international and interdisciplinary approach in its detail of the tools, techniques, and theoretical perspectives used in spatial demography. The individual volumes will help demographers better understand when, how, and why space matters in social behavior and institutions.

Upcoming Volumes:

F.M. Howell, J.R. Porter, S.A. Matthews (Eds.) Recapturing Space: New Middle-Range Theory in Spatial Demography Vol. 1
