We are now well into prime marking season and I am as eagerly anticipating the results for my third years as they are (well, perhaps not quite). Amidst this season of marking and reflecting on the success (or otherwise!) of my first semester lecturing, I had the opportunity to read and review a new book. Never one to turn down a free book, I happily agreed to write the review for the British Society for Population Studies’ (BSPS) latest newsletter. For those of you who are not members, join! But in the meantime, read my review of “People and Places, A 21st-century atlas of the UK” by Danny Dorling and Bethan Thomas.
