3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Too Many People? provides a clear, well-documented, and popularly written refutation of the idea that "overpopulation" is a major cause of environmental destruction, arguing that a focus on human numbers not only misunderstands the causes of the crisis, it dangerously weakens the movement for real solutions. No other book challenges modern overpopulation theory so clearly and comprehensively, providing invaluable insights for the layperson and environmental scholars alike

Making threats : biofears and environmental anxieties by Betsy Hartmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making Threats: Biofears and Environmental Anxieties addresses how environmental and biological fears are used to manufacture threats to individual, national, and global security. Contributors from a wide variety of perspectives discuss what they share in common: the view that fears should be critically examined to avoid unnecessary alarm and scapegoating of people and nations as the "enemy Other." by uncovering the tools that make fear resonate in the public consciousness, by identifying the interests that create or are sustained by fears, Making Threats engages with some of the most potent and disturbing political and cultural aspects of contemporary life."--Jacket
The America syndrome : apocalypse, war and our call to greatness by Betsy Hartmann( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this thought-provoking, big-idea book, Betsy Hartmann sheds light on a pervasive but--until now--invisible theme shaping the American mindset: apocalyptic thinking, or the belief that the end of the world is nigh. Tracing our nation's fixation with doomsday from the Puritans to the present, Hartmann makes a compelling case that apocalyptic fears are deeply intertwined with the American ethos, to our detriment. Hartmann shows how apocalyptic thinking has historically contributed to some of our nation's biggest problems, such as inequality, permanent war, and the exploitation of natural resources. While it is tempting to view these problems as harbingers of the end times, this mindset constricts the collective imagination and precludes social change. The truth is that we have much more control over the future of our planet than we think, and our fatalism is much more dangerous than the apocalypse. In The America Syndrome, Hartmann seeks to reclaim human agency and, in so doing, revise the national narrative. By changing the way we think, we just might change the world"--

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Traveling alone when she was between 17 and 22, with no institutional affiliation and no financial assistance, the author visited five developing countries and two developed ones on five continents. Her goal was to extend her own experience in an abortion clinic in Portland, Oregon. Lara Knudsen interviewed over 90 women's rights activists, health professionals, NGO workers, and government officials, gaining a sense of both official policies and the actual delivery of services in local clinics. The book places the experiences of women within the global context of how international population control agendas have influenced women's reproductive rights in the past, and how the changing international discourse on reproductive health continues to influence those rights today
