This is the second volume of the proceedings of an international seminar held in Siena, Italy, April 22-24, 1996. The 15 papers in this volume, which are in English, French, or Italian, examine various aspects of both the causes and consequences of demographic trends. The conference was envisioned as a first step toward the development of a basic demographic textbook including a synthesis of demography as a discipline as well as analyses of individual demographic phenomena.
