This collection of original critical essays by well-known feminist scholars and activists presents a multicultural, international scope on the major global issues of the day: environment, development, and population control. The authors' pointed analyses reveal the racism behind environmental degradation and immigration control, the paternalism underlying many population control efforts, and the widespread scapegoating of women, the poor, and immigrants as the source of major world problems. Dangerous Intersections presents realistic solutions that rely on the ingenuity and resourcefulness of local communities of women as the agents of global change.

Essays cover topics such as the use and mis-use of reproductive technology, the real impact of population growth on the environment, the devastating effects of militarism and consumption, and movements for sovereignty and social justice worldwide. Dangerous Intersections will force readers to confront the intertwined effects of our attitudes toward population, the environment, and development. This call for just, equitable solutions to urgent problems will enlighten activists, scholars, and policy makers alike.
