Product Overview

Based on original ethnographic research conducted in rural Haiti, Timothy T. Schwartz offers an explanation for a demographic paradox that some of the most prominent sociologists and demographers of the twentieth century noted but were never able to explain: among impoverished small farmers_when more men are absent due to male wage migration_why do the women remaining behind give birth to more, not fewer, babies?
