An excellent scientific review of major medical, public health, and demographic peer-reviewed essays. Topical organization of chapters facilitates the identification of the papers of greatest substantive interest. The writing inspires both the scholar and the less technically-oriented reader to draw lessons on population demographics that will be an asset for those stakeholders and future policy-makers trying to increase human capital, promote social and economic development, and enhance family well-being in Ethiopia.
