Population Concerns in India: Shifting Trends, Policies, and Programs (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


A major concern for any country's polity and development, the issue of population has always been particularly problematic in India given the diversity of religions and other social stratifications. Population Concerns in India: Shifting Trends, Policies, and Programs analyzes how the country has handled this concern in the seven decades post Independence.

The book discusses the various policies and programs that were considered most appropriate in different situations, and deliberates over how the population problem was perceived at different times. It also highlights the results achieved by India's Family Planning Programme and the implications of the successful experiences.

Written by an internationally renowned demographer, this book recommends policies that can effectively deal with the population concerns in this country.
