"This book is an excellent summation of knowledge and a thoughtful attempt to interpret a thousand years of European history. It will provide useful reading material for students of European population, for experts in the field and for readers everywhere interested in understanding just how Europe came to be the way it is." Journal of Population Research
"In this book, Livi-Bacci manages to link factors which direct the demographic system of a population, and thereby its development, with cultural as well as environmental conditions in a lively and narrative fashion. It is in this way that Livi-Bacci succeeds in giving a complex picture of culture in Europe, customs, behaviours, values and norms. Thus the book is of interest not only for population geographers but for all readers with an interest in Europe." International Journal of Population Geography
"Good Synthetic treatments of European historical demography are scarce, and the publication of Massimo Livi-Bacci's Population History of Europe is much to be welcomed ... the book can be highly recommended as an introductory/intermediate level student text on European population history, and to non-specialists as a point of entry to the discipline of historical demography." English Historical Review
"A stimulating book, which offers an effective introduction to demographic history for the non-specialist." History
"He has provided an accessible and eminently readable introduction to the population history of Europe ... with a level of insight and penetration that few introductory texts can match ... the work will also attract many historians to the otherwise dauntingly quantitative world of demography." Population Studies
"The Population of Europe provides a masterly volume for the 'Making of modern Europe' series... a work of great scholarship, drawing extensively from the bulk of demographic research published over half a century or more..." Progress in Human Geography
