Synopsis

Population in an Interacting World by William Alonso

Earth's human population inhabits a complex web shaping population movements and patterns of births and deaths. Nine experts explore the nature of the interplay linking rich and poor countries. The demographic experience of each nation occurs in a larger context of social, political, economic, cultural, religious, military, and biological forces.

Reviews

This book deals in a balanced and foresightful manner with the large and accelerating flows of low-income Third World people to the rich nations of the industrialized West. Few global flows are so profoundly political, so human, so certain to be of growing importance, so mind-boggling. This a breathtaking book, in both the scope of its coverage and the depth of its analysis.--Michael S. Teitelbaum
