Fred Pearce’s book Peoplequake is my current read and is utterly un-put-downable. Starting with a comprehensive introduction to and history of, the fields of demographics and population policy, it goes on to look at the role of some highly controversial eugenics policies (unacceptable to most right thinking folk, but tragically fashionable within certain sections of academia and government throughout the last 200 years) and how these have wreaked havoc and taken terrible liberties with civil rights across the world with relatively unreported but shattering results for the future of society, nations and the economy. It is a fascinating journey into human nature, political intrigue and the positive power of ordinary people – particularly through the story of the transformation of the lives of women in the modern world. I am half way through and am interested to read how the author sees it all panning out.
