Summary
Weisman visits an extraordinary range of the world's cultures, religions, nationalities, tribes, and political systems to learn what in their beliefs, histories, liturgies, or current circumstances might suggest that sometimes it's in their own best interest to limit their growth. Countdown reveals what may be the fastest, most acceptable, practical, and affordable way of returning the planet and the presence on it back in balance
