Ooh, that book looks interesting

I just read a review for the book: Fatal Mis-conceptions; The Struggle to Control World Population. I am very interested in reading this one. It is written by a historian from Columbia, so that’s (check 1), and it is written by someone who struggles with this topic being that he’s from a big family (check 2). Yeah, my interest is piqued. But the book is just released and still too expensive. I’ll probably wait a few months.

Excerpt from The Economist review (in case you don’t get the online edition):
“When…Mr Connelly began his own book on population growth, he still thought of the topic as a way to offer a broader understanding of world security. He ended up writing a very different—and angry—book, one about people who looked at the human race reproducing itself and saw what a gardener sees when looking at a prize plant: something to be encouraged to bloom in some places and pruned in others.”
