"A wide-ranging and detailed collection." Times Higher Education Supplement <!--end-->

"For students and those who want a single overall picture of Chinese population issues, this work provides a short, readable, and comprehensive guide. In short, this is an invaluable book." Population Studies

"Perhaps the most comprehensive English-language review of China's population to date ... Of special value to students and researchers of China is the book's documentation of population policies, programmes, regulations and their changes, which are rarely available in the English language with such clarity. The contributors, looking 'from inside out', are clearly among the most qualified to review the administrative facets of China's population ... This book is timely, informative and comprehensive, and is an especially useful reference for non-Chinese readers to assess the latest patterns, views and issues of population in China."
