Description - Women, Population and Global Crisis by Asoka Bandarage
This is a critique of the assumption that over-population is one of the root causes of global crisis. It gives a historical overview of the population question and places the population-poverty-environment-security debate within a broad theoretical perspective. The first part of the book looks at conventional ideologies of population control. In the second part, the author develops an alternative analysis of "overpopulation". Finally, she explores new global visions and efforts towards peace, justice and ecology. The book is a synthesis of Third World, feminist, socialist and ecological thinking and solutions.
