Addresses the question of whether Malthus, were he alive today, would support compulsory family planning (a policy generally referred to as "Malthusian").

Its central thesis is that the population problem has also the concomitant social problems [of] unemployment, ill health, [and] crime, [with] (1) poverty as their 'immediate' determinant, (2) such evils as(More)
