MEDIA REVIEWS

'For those who wonder why the whole subject of world population growth has disappeared from public view, this lucid account by two demographers provides all of the answers. Written in a highly engaging style, the book traces the history of the international population movement, its politics and the various conflicting views. This is a fascinating and important piece of work.- Charles F. Westoff, Princeton University, USA

'This volume is a masterful contribution. Kantner and Kantner have performed a significant service in bringing together the growing literature evaluating the post-Cairo experience in policy, program planning, and recipient countries' efforts to implement the ICPD agenda. Their detailed discussion and assessment of the literature is both insightful and judicious. It is written with an understated authority that should attract the serious attention of many readers. One hopes that it may also help to bring about a return to a more demographically literate approach to population and development.- Alison McIntosh, Former Director, University of Michigan Population Fellows Program, USA

'With this accessible volume, John and Andrew Kantner, highly regarded sociologist demographers, provide a 50-year history of population work and a candid, original, and often critical analysis of efforts to address population in developing countries. The book is remarkable in its willingness to criticize prevailing ideologies, including policies adopted at the watershed Cairo population conference, and to offer a feasible prescription for future work in the field.'- J. Joseph Speidel, Bixby Center for Reproductive Health Research& Policy, University of California, San Francisco, USA

'This book will please both the scholar and the muckraker. It is a penetrating critique of the international population movement and its opponents. No paradigm is left unchallenged.'- Jason L. Finkle, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan, USA
