Summary
This study describes the development of the international population movement in the period since World War II, with particular attention given to the role of private U.S. foundations. There are chapters on the beginnings of the modern population movement in the 1950s, developments through the 1960s and 1970s, the causes and effects of population change, the search for better methods of contraception, India and its population problem, population issues in the United States, and new directions for the population movement. The book concludes with three essays: one by Ansley J. Coale on the present status of world population, demography, and population policy; one by Sheldon J. Segal on expanding contraceptive choices for men and women; and one by Amy O. Tsui on reforming population paradigms for science and action
