This volume brings together a number of in-depth studies on Asian population history. The chapters discuss a diverse range of subjects -- comparative perspectives, fertility, disease and mortality, and marriage and family -- over a wide geographic area -- Japan, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, India, and Sri Lanka. This volume offers plenty of material for comparative study and will particularly appeal to academics and students in the fields of demography, history, and Asian studies.
