It measures and maps fertility changes keeping in mind the trends in the present, the concerns of the past processes and trajectories, and the spaces within which changes have taken place. Population and fertility change is thus analysed beyond the narrow confines of purely demographic variables with crucial emphasis on concrete historical contexts. The work also provides, for the first time, data on mortality, fertility and nuptiality, at the district level. (http://www.orientlongman.com/display.asp?categoryID=0&isbn=978-81-250-3862-7)
