Make Room! Make Room!
Synopsis: It is 1999. NYC has 35 million people [although the back cover of my copy says it has 40 million people], about 5x times what it has in our time. Even America is suffering under the burden of overpopulation with 350 million people [An excess of 72 million over the actual value in 1999] and all the predictions of Paul Ehrlich [who wrote the introduction for my edition] have come true. This is not terribly surprising, as this book is an exploration of the consequences of those predictions coming true.
