The dramatic growth of the human population in recent decades compels us to pay attention to the causes and consequences of population growth. Now is the time to use Population Geography to examine these causes and consequences. The scientific study of the human population is an interdisciplinary one involving demographers, geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, politi
cal scientists, economists, biologists, physicians, and even philosophers.

Population Geography: Problems, Concepts, & Prospects, Seventh Edition, by Gary L. Peters & Robert P.
