Depopulating Bangladesh: essays on the politics of fertility.

Akhter F
Dhaka, Bangladesh, Narigrantha Prabartana, 1992 Jun. 105 p.

This publication contains a series of lectures, papers, and addresses given by the author at various meetings around the world since 1984. The subject is the efforts that have been made to control population growth in Bangladesh since the 1950s. The author's theme is that population control is being imposed on Bangladesh by outside authorities for political and commercial purposes, current population programs and policies infringe women's reproductive rights, and that the poor countries of the world are being blamed unfairly for the world's environmental problems. The author's general approach to these issues reflects a combination of feminism and Marxism.
