Ecology, Development and Population Problem

Chi-Hsien Tuan (Author) K. Mahadevan (Author) V.B. Nair (Author)
Synopsis Preservation of perfect eco-system assumed urgent importance throughout the world in the context of rapid population growth, depletion of natural resources and faster development of economy on a competitive basis. All this happened because till recently development planners did not give any serious thought to the inter-relationship between eco-system, rapid population growth and economic-cum-technological development of society. The book eminently highlights these three vital issues here. Among the contributors are some eminent scholars from the U.S.A., Russia, China, Australia and India and they belong to the diverse disciplines of agriculture, demography, geography, biology, economics and sociology. Micro-level analytical discussion on inter-relationship between the three said aspects in most of the major states in India makes this book indispensable for development planners, administrators, academicians, welfare workers and change agents, besides lovers of nature and those who believe in better quality of life.
