Dangerous Intersections offers a multicultural, international scope on the major global issues of the dar: environment, development, and population control. This collection presents crucial alternative voices and appoaches to the short-sighted policies supported by mainstream politicians and nongovernmental organizations alike--policies that focus on fertility of poor women of color in the North and South as the primary threat to the ecological viability of the planet.
