Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Six Billion Plus explores world population growth and its implications for the twenty-first century. With a population currently exceeding six billion and expected to reach ten billion by mid-century, the world's demographic situation is more critical than ever, by almost any measure. While the developed world faces its own problems with an aging population and population decline, most of the growth will occur in the developing world. And so the strongest factors shaping the global environment in the decades to come will include population fertility, social and economic impacts of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, legal and illegal immigration, and refugees. The implications are enormous; population growth exacerbates food and resource scarcities, places pressure on institutions, and promotes the potential for conflict.

Book News Annotation:

Bringing a geographical and global perspective to population growth, this concise volume considers its implications for public policy, the AIDS epidemic, immigration, refugee flows, resource scarcity, and conflict. Five key demographic forces are identified, and their influence on the next century discussed. Maps, graphs, charts, and cartoons present the data and illustrate important concepts. A glossary defines key terms and acronyms. Newbold teaches geography at McMaster University.
