Description - Population and Progress in a Yoruba Town by Elisha P. Renne
This study of local perceptions of population and development in a rural southwestern Nigerian town questions some of the underlying assumptions of demographic theory of fertility transition. As this study demonstrates, neither fertility change nor development follows a universal trajectory. Whether lower fertility or Western models of development are viewed as possible or advantageous reflects cultural ideas about proper social relations as well as political economic conditions, which may hinder or facilitate these changes.
