   schema:reviewBody ""Twenty-First Century India is the first study of India's development to give a fully integrated account of population, development, and the economy. It is built on new projections of the population for fifty years from the census of 2001. India's population by then had already passed I billion people, and twenty-five years later it is likely to reach some 1.4 billion." "The projections in this book incorporate for the first time both inter-state migration and the role of HIV/AIDS, and show India's urban future, with close to half a billion urban inhabitants by the year 2026. Tracing the implications of this population growth, the volume covers the demographics of health, fertility and urbanization, the socioeconomic issues of education, employment, poverty, and economic growth, and the environmental future-looking at India's food and agriculture, energy, transport, and manufacturing industries, water, the cities, and common property resources." "Ultimately, this analysis is relatively optimistic about India's prospects. The country can continue to feed itself, and it can enjoy higher levels of energy use, manufacturing, and modern forms of transport, while experiencing less chemical pollution. India's cities can become cleaner and healthier places to live. Concluding with a chapter on policy, the book indicates that while India's future problems are large, they are in principle manageable." "This analysis will be invaluable to teachers and students of population studies, economic development, human development, and the environment, and those working on Indian issues in development agencies and non-governmental organizations.
