Summary "In this volume, ten anthropologists and geographers critically address traditional Malthusian discourses in essays that attempt to move "beyond territory and scarcity". The studies are drawn from a range of sub-Saharan African countries: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Lesotho, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, and the Sudan."--BOOK JACKET.
