This is a compilation of the most important papers of Bernard Berelson, an outstanding intellectual leader in the field of family planning and population.

The aim of this volume is to present Dr. Berelson's innovative application of social science concepts and methods to population policymaking within a careful ethical context. Topics explored include: - national family planning programs as a policy instrument - prospects and programs for fertility reduction in the developing world - efficient allocation of resources in population programs - the postpartum strategy in providing family planning - impact of improved contraceptive technology - ethical implications of government efforts to influence fertility - conditions of fertility decline in developing countries
