Generalizations about the lack of demographic change and of progress in meeting the MDGs in sub-Saharan Africa are commonplace, but they are often misleading and belie the socio-cultural change. This book compares Ethiopia with other African countries, demonstrating the uniqueness of an African-type demographic transition: a mix of poverty-related negative factors with positive education, health and higher age-of-marriage trends that are pushing this population to accelerate the demographic transition and meet most of the MDGs.

An Economic and Social History of the Netherlands, 1800-1920: Demographic, Economic and Social Transition by Michael Wintle
Cambridge University Press | October 23, 2000 | English | ISBN: 0521782953 | 416 pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book provides a comprehensive account of Dutch history in the "long" nineteenth century. In this fascinating and instructive period the country saw extremely rapid population growth, awesome death rates, staggering fertility, some of the fastest economic growth in the world, a uniquely large and efficient service sector, a vast and profitable overseas empire, and relative tolerance. This is the only single-authored book currently available on this crucial period of Dutch history, and it will be of central importance to Dutch specialists, as well as European historians more generally.
