Each of the four issues in this volume contains a specific concern of population studies. Issue number 1, "Responding to the Challenge" (K. Crews), accompanies the learning series module, "Global Population Trends: Challenges Facing World Leaders." Sections of the issue focus on elderly populations, especially in Japan, the effect of population pressures and large foreign debts on countries such as Peru, and the nature of economic immigration in the United States and political immigration in West Germany. A quiz for students using "The Population Data Sheet" is given, as well as an annotated bibliography of six resources on population issues. Issue number 2, "Mexico's Population: A Profile" (N. Paul), discusses the economy, migration, urbanization, and the future of the Mexican population. An annotated bibliography of seven items is included. Issue number 3, "Teaching Environmental Connections" (K. Crews), accompanies the teaching module, "Human Needs and Nature's Balance: Population, Resources, and the Environment," and contains review and reference questions on that material and an annotated list of 19 resources. Issue number 4, "Where Is the Metropolitan U.S.?" (K.
