"Interesting, informative and timely . . . fascinating reading, covering diverse settings with special attention to fertility and international migration."--Joseph Chamie, former Director of the United Nations Population Division--Joseph Chamie
"The Global Spread of Fertility Decline is a masterful analysis of declining fertility and rising migration during the second great wave of globalization since 1980. Winter and Teitelbaum emphasize the importance of political elements in explaining why fertility is falling in many countries and migration is rising. In both cases, policies affect the risks perceived by families and migrants and their decisions about whether to have children or migrate."--Philip Martin, UC Davis
--Philip Martin
"The claim that politics matters (not everywhere and at all times) is given ample support throughout the volume. Anyone interested in how it figures in a big picture of key facets of contemporary demography--be it low fertility, immigration, or something else--would find perusing the book rewarding. It certainly has a potential of serving as an inspiration for studies on other countries or regions of the same nature."--Miroslav Macura, IDEMO University of Geneva-- (06/01/2015)
