About this book

Proposing ways that China can move from vicious to positive cycles, the authors offer creative recommendations for overcoming the current crisis and for promoting development. The book will be an important reference for other nations, international organisations and researchers seeking to solve population and environmental problems.

'A valuable source in providing guidance to understanding the size and complex interrelations between population, development and environment in China. The study discloses a wealth of Chinese material for the outside world. It provides the reader with a good overview of the official Chinese policy and its little impact so far' - TESG
