About this book

In this book, the distinguished biologist Sir Alan Parkes takes a look at population issues and relates them to a wide range of global events that threaten the future of the earth and its people. After covering the essential elements of demography, he describes the degradation of the natural environment as a consequence of man's increasing numbers and technology; the backlash of sophistication that adds man-made disasters to the natural hazards that affect human numbers.
