Do We Have a Right to More?
Reviews and Awards
"This book is a highly valuable contribution to practical philosophy. It gets a hugely important topic on the table in a serious way without compromising readability. If you are looking for an engaging and provocative addition to your personal library, or for your ethics or political philosophy courses, I highly recommend this book." -- Jason Marsh, Journal of Moral Philosophy
"Sarah Conly's book tackles an urgent, under-discussed topic: Is having children an unlimited, personal right? Or is this view no longer tenable in an era of vast increases in human population? Professor Conly rejects unlimited procreation rights and defends a one child per family limit as a moral imperative and perhaps as a legal requirement. This very fine book is clearly written, thorough in its treatment of the issues, and very fair to the opposing views."--Stephen Nathanson, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, Northeastern University
"...this is a well-crafted book on a very important topic...It is probably laypersons and undergraduate students who will benefit the most from reading this book." -- Metapsychology Online Reviews
"One Child is hard to resist. Conly starts from a well-developed empirical basis--multiply-sourced news about the devastation we court, but which she deploys modestly...Lucid, engaging, and empirically saturated...These discussions are wholly pertinent and quite well done." -- Philosophers' Magazine
