What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.

Troth Wells - one of the founders of the New Internationalist cooperative

New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.

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.
