About this book

Is rapid world population growth actually coming to an end? As population growth and its consequences have become front-page issues, projections of slowing growth from such institutions as the United Nations and the World Bank have been called into question. Beyond Six Billion asks what such projections really say, why they say it, whether they can be trusted, and whether they can be improved. 'an authoritative assessment of what we can expect for population totals at global, regional and national levels over the next half-century.' Norman Myers, Nature
