Book cover of 8 Billion and Counting: How Sex, Death, and Migration Shape Our World by Jennifer Sciubbaby Jennifer D. Sciubba

A provocative description of the power of population change to create the conditions for societal transformation.

As the world nears 8 billion people, the countries that have led the global order since World War II are becoming the most aged societies in human history. At the same time, the world’s poorest and least powerful countries are suffocating under an imbalance of population and resources. In 8 Billion and Counting, political demographer Jennifer D. Sciubba argues that the story of the twenty-first century is less a story about exponential population growth, as the previous century was, than it is a story about differential growth—marked by a stark divide between the world’s richest and poorest countries.
