The New Internationalist is one of the most profound magazines.
People these days almost crave information that helps them to make sense of the world, and the New Internationalist magazine does that brilliantly.
Thank you for producing such an important publication.
I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.
Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
With world population passing 7 billion and predicted to hit 9 billion by 2050 we are in the grip of a numbers panic. This book looks at what the numbers mean; why women in most parts of the world are having fewer children; what will happen to our societies as we all live longer; 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 urgent issues surrounding world population, climate change, human rights and the future of the world.
