About the Book :

People and land space signify all pervasive dimensions of geographic study. Population attributes represent expressive elements of necessary spatio-temporal events. These events, in turn, find manifestations best in rural-urban context. The apparent reality of population dynamics has remained the essential part of the most critical divide of rural versus urban. The authors have realised this contextual essence and provide an elaborate interpretation of spatio-temporal vision and reality of select demographic attributes in the book. The contents of the book mean comprehensive implications to educative and socio-economic planning endeavours.
