Shocking and crammed with detail, this book is about where and how geopolitics plays out in the 21st century.
Drawing on the authors’ three decades of international fieldwork and seasoned policy analysis, The Real Population Bomb hits like a pile driver. Its essential truths can no longer be ignored: We have never been here before in human history. The choices we make in this next decade will determine the fate of human societies.
By 2025, 27 cities will have populations greater than 10 million and more than 600 cities will have populations greater than one million. Specific megacities, intimately connected to globalization, are posing huge security challenges—now. Authors P.H. Liotta and James F. Miskel focus intensely on effects these massive, underserved, and undergoverned cities have on international stability, human security, and environmental degradation. The Real Population Bomb offers strategies and solutions for mitigating those effects. With its stark, often stunning, portraits of major urban centers in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and South America, the book illuminates how megacity leviathans are redrawing the map of the future, in ways that affect us all.
You may not agree with this book’s message. But it will prove difficult to forget.
