With world population passing 7 billion and predicted to hit 9 billion by 2050 we are in the grip of a number panic. This book looks at what the numbers mean; why women in most parts of the world have fewer children; what will happen to our societies as we all live; and how having babies relates to climate change.
A concise and balanced guide to the past, present and future of population written by a previous No-Nonsense Guide author and co-editor at the New Internationalist. Ideal for students, academics and anyone interested in the growing issues surrounding world population, climate change, human rights and the future of the world.
