Recognizing that world population growth will continue well into the twenty-first century, Six Billion Plus offers a geographical and global perspective on the implications of this trend. This compact, illustrated, and accessible text focuses on many of the strongest factors that will shape the global environment in the decades to come, including population fertility, epidemics like HIV/AIDS, legal and illegal immigration, refugee flows, scarce resources, and the potential for conflict. Six Billion Plus is ideal for population courses in geography as well as in areas such as economics, sociology, and politics. Visit our website for sample chapters!
