THE PAKISTAN DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
Population and Food Supply: Essays on Human Needs and Agricultural Prospects Edited by Sir Joseph Hutchinson. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1966.
This book is a collection of lectures on population and agricultural prospects delivered in Cambridge University, England, during 1966 and 1967 by a group of scholars with diverse backgrounds. Some of them are demographers and economists, some others are nutritionists and physiologists. Probably because of the specific nature of the population problem and food supply or perhaps because these lectures were not originally prepared with the intention of publishing them together in a book form, there appears to be a lot of repetition of ideas by the individual lecturers. The book is, however, interesting as it covers all the important aspects of the population problem and the problem of keeping up food supply.
