Read full description of the books:
Couples without children continue to be viewed as strange, and too often they're only just tolerated. But Cheryl and Ellis Levinson, a married couple who have lived childfree for twenty-nine years, don't just defend those who refrain from having children-they celebrate them.
They also argue that society doesn't treat childfree couples fairly and that many couples with children are putting the world at risk. Overpopulation poses real dangers, including an increased threat of climate change, accelerated animal and plant extinctions, and the wholesale destruction of rainforests and other habitats.
The Levinsons explore the increasingly common choice to remain childfree and challenge the ethics of those who choose to procreate. They consider a host of issues, including
liabilities facing children;
motivations to have children;
lack of parental preparation;
nature versus nurture; and
Despite the dangers of overpopulation, many people continue to have children without thinking through the consequences. It's time to take a larger view and consider whether or not there are Enough of Us.
