Now at over seven billion and counting, renowned visionary conservationist and global thinker Dave Foreman helps us understand that only by stabilizing and reducing human population can we stop wrecking our home - Earth.
And it is being driven by one species - Us.
Read Man Swarm, and you will know the truths about overpopulation and population growth. In this book, Dave Foreman:
o Lays out the overpopulation crisis in the United States and worldwide
o Shows how overpopulation is the main driver of the extinction of wildlife, wildlands and the creation of pollution, including destructive greenhouse gases
o Smartly challenges those who don't believe that the overpopulation crisis is real
The first edition, Man Swarm and the Killing of Wildlife reached the conservationist community; in this new edition, Man Swarm: How Overpopulation is Killing the Wild World, Dave Foreman and editor Laura Carroll also reach a wider readership, from those in their reproductive years, to educators, governors, Congresspersons, and world leaders.
Overpopulation is Solvable.
Are you a lover of the Earth's natural world? Man Swarm shows why you need to be very concerned about overpopulation, gives you tangible ways to be part of the solution, and will inspire you to take action.
If we can solve overpopulation -- and we can -- it will be a great victory for all of humanity and the Earth!

Dave Foreman's Man Swarm is the ... THE ... most important book for anyone and everyone concerned about wildlife and wild places. Without reducing the number of humans on the Earth, no solution to the problems of deteriorating wildlife habitat is going to work for the long term. Dave Foreman again proves himself to be a prophet for the salvation of wildlife and wild places. The man deserves a Pulitzer Prize for dedicating his life to helping wildlife and wild places.
A highly informative book about the effects of overpopulation on our environment, land and wild life. It is so well written and impacting that I promise you will immediately be drawn in by this page turner. Man Swarm takes on many controversial issues such as family planning, technology, immigration and walks us through the impact of these various issues (and many more) on overpopulation. This book is written from a broad reaching perspective yet is anchored in significant factual evidence all while being managed in a very readable style. It is so important to raise awareness of this critical topic. I think you will feel the same after reading this excellent book.
This is a timely, erudite book. It pulls together much of the key evidence to support the contention that homo sapiens is rendering many other species extinct through over-population and related development. This is both unethical and unfair. Anyone who cares about this deepest of problems for the planet should read this book. It is well-written, substantive and mostly avoids the polemics associated with many who feel the same way. Plus, the book is short!
