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.
