OVERPOPULATION

Crisis or Challenge?
Age Range: 12 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

 In the ``Science/Technology/Society'' series, a dry but focussed introduction to demographics-related issues. After describing the causes and deleterious effects of the population explosion, Aaseng discusses possible solutions and their moral ramifications and provides several case studies of societies that are attempting to solve the problem, delineating the reasons for their successes and failures. A final chapter redefines an approach to overpopulation in terms of the information provided. Though the writing here is routine, this is a clear, carefully reasoned, well-researched guide to an important issue. Source notes; good bibliography; index. (Nonfiction. 12+)
