Review of Asian historical demography in the new Handbook of Asian Demography

Satomi Kurosu and I published a survey on Asian historical demography in the new Routledge Handbook of Asian Demography edited by Zhongwei Zhao and Adrian C. Hayes. In our review, we covered work on classic topics in historical demography such as population growth, fertility and mortality, as well as topics of growing interest such as migration, kinship, marriage, and reproduction.  We also introduce the various sources of data that are transforming the study of historical populations in Asia.
