Population Bulletin, Volume 25 Number 5. A Sourcebook on Population.
Moran, William E., Jr.
This sourcebook includes an annotated bibliography of population literature, university centers, libraries, international organizations, and U. S. government programs in the field of population. The sourcebook is designed, first of all, to be useful for the concerned layman and secondly for the professional demographic community. The sourcebook is divided into two major sections: a population bibliography and a guide to population organizations and programs. It also includes a glossory of common demographic terms. The bibliography introduces the layman to general works on population and then, in some 50 categories and subcategories, offers a broad spectrum of more specialized but non-technical treatments. The 430 entries are arranged alphabetically by author, with information on the publisher, date and place of publication, length of work and retail price. Out-of-print books of particular merit are identified. The second section presents a basic picture of graduate-level university population centers in the United States, the location and resources of non-university population libraries open to outside researchers, the major private U. S. and international programs of the U. S. government. (BR)
