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.

About the Author:
Vanessa Baird has been co-editor at New Internationalist magazine since 1986. Previous books include, as compiler and editor, Eye to Eye Women and The No-Nonsense Guide to Sexual Diversity.
