Taking Population Seriously

By Frances Moore Lappé & Rachel Schurman

Most books on population simply sound alarm; this one asks what positively can be learned from the third world's few success stories. Six third world countries, plus the Indian state of Kerala, stand out for achieving dramatic reductions in birth rates. What made their success possible? And what lessons do they hold for our planet, where beings must quickly bring our species into balance with the natural world?
