"After more than a decade of neglect, population trends and their adverse social, economic, health, environmental, and political effects have returned to the global policy agenda. Government interventions aimed at minimizing unfavorable demographic developments have often been contentious. This timely and comprehensive book provides a wealth of valuable insight and thoughtful commentary on controversies and policy options."
(Dr. John Bongaarts, PhD; Vice President and Distinguished Scholar, The Population Council, New York, NY)

"Demography, like economics, is a discipline of cold precision. John May uses demography, without a whiff of exaggeration, to demonstrate how population growth, especially in Africa, is undermining economic progress and threatening good governance. It is imperative policy makers read World Population Policies: Their Origin, Evolution, and Impact."
(Dr. Malcolm Potts, MB, BChir, PhD, FRCOG; Bixby Professor Population and Family Planning, University of California, Berkeley, CA)

"Wide ranging and thorough, yet remarkably accessible for the non-expert, May's book is a stellar account of the state of our human population today. He brings the wisdom of broad experience to consider the variety of national and individual situations, and the urgent need for good equitable policy decisions. Numerous focus passages bring colour and compassion to the narrative."
(John Sulston, PhD, FRS; shared the 2002 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine; Chair, The Royal Society’s Working Group on People and the Planet, London, UK)
