"Overpopulation'' and "Underdevelopment'' are terms in everyday use, but what exactly do they mean and how are these concepts related? This course analyzes the areal patterns of population growth and distribution, and applies the results of this analysis to the question of the problem of development of the contemporary world. Scenarios for the future are examined.

3 lecture hours per week, one term.
