'This is a very readable, jargon-free book that challenges the many myths and inaccuracies about population. It also challenges us all to rethink what the real drivers of resource shortages, land degradation and global warming actually are' David Satterthwaite, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), London. 'Extremely readable and well-written. The arguments- utterly and absolutely non-mainstream - are substantiated by solid data and citations. Publications of this nature are hugely welcome in view of the lies and myths that prevail in the dominant discourse on population globally' Professor Mohan Rao, Centre of Social Medicine and Community Health, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
