About this book

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.


Malthusianism; towards an alternative analysis structure and outline of the book. Part One: Malthusianism - theory and practice; Malthusian analysis of global crisis; the population stabilization agenda; evolution of the population control movement. Part Two: an alternative analysis; origin and evolution of the population explosion; social determinants of fertility - class and gender; inequality and environmental destruction; inequality and power; inequality and violence - the dynamics of resistance and repression. Part Three: towards democratic and sustainable development; from production to reproduction. Conclusions: criteria for a new policy on population and global survival.

Media reviews
'Placing the needs of women, and particularly women of color, at the enter of her analysis, [Bandarage] shows how the contradictions in the social and economic realities that dominate their lives jeopardize the well-being of us all. Her proposals for cooperative and democratic efforts to stem poverty give hope that we can build societies respectful of the needs of people and the rest of the natural world' - Ruth Hubbard, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Harvard University
