Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 20–21. Reviews the book, Advances in Population: Psychosocial Perspectives (Vol. 1) edited by Lawrence J. Severy (1993). This edited book contains excellent examples of the recent works of psychosocialists, including new theoretical statements, reviews of international population policies, theory-driven empirical works, as well as applied research. The result is the development of new theories and methods for use in one of the major areas of population study, fertility. The book begins with two masterful reviews of the literature. The diversity present in the book reflects what psychosocialists can contribute to the study of population dynamics and to psychology. The book makes an exciting and worthwhile contribution to both fields. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
