A wide range of expert opinion on current demographic problems is presented in this book, based on the proceedings of the 1949 meeting of the Population Association of America. The contributors are: S.L. Wolfbein, P.H. Jacobson, C. Tietze, I. Taeuber, J.C. Russell, W.J. Gibbons, S.J. K. Davis, R. Bradfield, J.D. Black, G. Clapp, R. Eckler, T.J. Woffter, C. F. Schmid, H. C. Taylor, C. Senior, I. DeA. Reid, W.H. Grabill, R. Freedman, M. Woodside. Discussions include total marital dissolutions in the United States, illegal abortions, proposals for modifying the net reproduction rate, population and scarce food resources, and what is probably the most complete statement available on the relation of the Catholic value system to human fertility.
