Part of the "Environment At Risk" series, these books address the changes on our planet and challenge the reader to demonstrate a fairly sophisticated level of understanding. These are not simply give-the-world-a-hug books, but address the philosophies, laws, and science of the problems we face. Reiter opens by looking at the logistical problems of fast-growing cities, specifically in Africa. These cities are part of a historic rise and fall of populations all over the world. When food is plentiful, populations grow. When it is scarce, populations decrease. And while the historical perspective is important, it does not make the current shortages pleasant or even palatable. Reiter does a good job of introducing science and historic issues, and includes multiple and opposing arguments. He identifies each speaker before the quote so the reader can decide how much weight to give to that argument. However, his book is not wishy-washy. It comes down firmly on the side of ecology. His sources, a list of further reading suggestions, and an index are listed in the back.
