Brown, Lester. Who Will Feed China?: Wake-Up Call for a Small Planet. W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. September 1995.
Using South Korea and Japan as examples of agriculturally-based civilizations that transitioned quickly to industrialization and overpopulation, resulting in land, food and water scarcity, author Lester Brown focuses on China’s rapid industrialization and increasingly dense population. As a result, Brown arrives at grave predictions for the future of a world on an environmentally and economically unsustainable trajectory.
