"Why write another book abou t population problems when so many have already been written? Hitherto mostof these books have mainly described the actual world situation. Some have dealt with the possibilities of feeding the rapidly increasing populations ; and how to cope with the numerous problems which are arising all the time. Recently a movement has been started to promote the stabilization of the world's population. For some reason none of these books seems to have seriously suggested a carefully planned decrease in the number of human beings. This book is conccrned with what will happen if we decide to decrease worldpopulation. It certainly appears that the results cannot fail to be genera lly advantageous. How such a decrease could be brought about is the centralissue of the book. Also if matters do not develop exactly as outlined here , which they of course will not, the consequences of a considerable decrease in population would, nevertheless, undoubtedly be highly beneficial. A world balanced with its resources is, for the first time in history, possible, as the result of present knowledge and means. It would afford mankind thechance of attaining a better and happier life for everyone. This book asks each reader the question: 'Is there one single reason why we should not be fewer on this earth'?" (p. 3). Contents : 1. The Ball as is. 2. A selectio n of truisms. 3. Stop growing - decrease. 4. Opposition to balancing. 5. Methods. 6. Life in balance. Very good. Scarce. 50.00
