This book grew out of the frustrations of teaching demography in East Africa on the basis of the very technical and Western approach to the discipline, which has limited value for the African data and perspectives. One of the purposes of this book is to tie the analysis of demographic data to a sociological framework. The other main purpose is to produce a textbook in demography which analyses East African demographic data within a sociological framework.
