  • The Myth of Millionaire Tax Flightby Cristobal Young

    Stanford University Press 2017; US$ 22.95

    In this age of globalization, many countries and U.S. states are worried about the tax flight of the rich.

Many assume that the... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 49.09

    For over a hundred years, demography has been at the heart of the Zionist project, reflected in the goal of creating and maintaining a Jewish majority in Israel and in ensuring the physical continuation of the Jewish people.

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 46.43

    "Kingsley Davis (1908-1997) was one of the pioneers in social demography, and was particularly identified with the theory of the demographic transition.

  • Unnatural Deaths in the U.S.S.R.by Iosif G. Dyadkin

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 49.09

    This astonishing and sobering account of government- and war-induced civilian deaths in the Soviet Union calculates that Soviet loss of life between 1928 and 1954 was far higher than Western ex-perts have ever believed. Applying mathematical techniques to Soviet demographic statistics, Dyadkin shows that Stalinist repres-sion and World War II must... more...

  • Why Demography Mattersby Danny Dorling; Stuart Gietel-Basten

    Wiley 2017; US$ 29.95 US$ 26.96
