About this book


This book interprets and explains contemporary population issues from historical and cultural perspectives. These include lowest-low fertility in the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, early population aging in China relative to the developmental level, and various modes of domestic and international migration in the region. The book shows that divergent fertility decline can be attributed to the family patterns established in the pre-modern era in each country. It also examines the diversity of international migration in Eastern Asian countries today is also understood from the long-term historical view.
