Reproductive Rights and Wrongs reveals the dangers of contemporary population-control tactics, especially for women in developing countries. It also tells the story of how international women's health activists fought to reform population control and promoted a new agenda of sexual and reproductive health and rights for all people. While their efforts bore fruit, many obstacles remain. Today, despite declining birth rates worldwide, overpopulation alarm is on the rise, and now it is tied to the threats of climate change and terrorism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is is a book of conscience. Shocking, eloquent, carefully researched, it should be read-and acted upon." -Gena Corea "This revised edition of a feminist classic adds new information on AIDS, contraception, and the anti-abortion movement as it probes world patterns of population and reproduction control and its meaning for the future. Rapid population growth is here linked to economic and social problems in chapters which provide strong keys to understanding world population patterns." -Midwest Book Review "Stands out amid the rising tide of books on the population question. Hartmann's critique of global special interests in population and the environment are must reading for students and policy analysts." -Judy Norsigian and Norma Swenson, coauthors The New Our Bodies, Ourselves "If i had time to read just one book to gain an understanding of the population and development link, this one would be it." -Dianne J. Forte, National Black Women's Health Project "It is unusual to find such a clear explanation of the complex issues involved in population control in the modern world; Ms. Hartmann's clarity can have come only from enormous work and deep understanding. This is a modern analysis which gives us hope." -Jonathan Mann, director, FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard School of Public Health "At this juncture in history when victim blaming has become more blatant and oppressive, there is a need for voices of sanity. This book is such a voice. It reflects conviction, courage, sensitivity, and deep insight." -Mira Shiva, Asian representative, International Peoples' Health Council "Political power-not population control-remains the critical element needed today to confront the threats of inequality, climate change, and gendered and racial oppression that face humanity today. Hartmann's book remains an indispensible resource for those looking to rebuild that power today." -International Socialist Review
