The book offers an interesting blend of analytical and empirical insights in modelling fertility and poverty, and drawing policy implications.' Dr Sushanta Mallick, Queen Mary, University of London, UK 'The book makes a seminal contribution to foster better understanding on the dynamics of the relationship between population and development and will constitute an important reference for academics, researchers and students interested in the subject.' Rafiqul Huda Chaudhury, Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal 'Explores the relationship between poverty and high fertility and the ways in which reducing one will affect the other.'
