"...The Editors and contributors need to be congratulated for presenting such an excellent publication. This is very much a publication that should be on the shelf of all those interested in population and family economics. ...I anxiously await volume 1C(?), although given the scope and depth if the two current volumes, it is difficult to imagine what further topics need to be surveyed."
The Economic Journal
...the Handbook provides and ideal entry point for an economist or economics graduate student looking for authoratative surveys of an important branch of economics. ...
"Ambitious and enormously useful project. ... Rosenzweig and Stark have recruited an outstanding group of economists to write these surveys - virtually all have made important contributions to the areas they survey. ..."
