About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1957, and sponsored by the Conservation Foundation, this book assesses the impact of population growth on the island of Jamaica. Roberts does not confine himself only to statistics, but also considers the ways in which changes in population affect social structures, employment trends and land use. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in human ecology or conservation.
