Kegan, Lawrence R., Ed.

Population problems in both the United States and throughout the world are summarized and analyzed, pictorially and narratively, in this special newspaper supplement to "The New York Times", April 30, 1972. Part I presents the U. S. problem, with the following contributions: excerpts from President Richard Nixon's message to Congress on population; a summary of the final report and recommendations from the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future together with a statement by its president, John D. Rockefeller 3rd; a women's viewpoint by Patsy Mink, U. S. Representative from Hawaii; Catholic concerns by Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, President, University of Notre Dame; and a study of black perspectives by four prominent black Americans. The world crisis of population growth, as covered in Part II, begins with the role of the United Nations regarding directions of assistance and the U. N. Fund for Population Activities. Following is an essay on the burdens facing developing nations with specific reference to Africa, Latin America, the Philippines, China, and India. Also included are briefs about worldwide private efforts and man and nature; a bibliography of books, reports, source materials, and organizations; and a teacher's pamphlet of generalizations, content summaries, discussion questions, sample lessons, and related activities.
