Yes, it seems somewhat... fanciful? in places (and I have always had a
hard time understanding Russian "explanatory" diagrams :-). But it has
a few good points, such as that the demographic transition is not due
to Malthusian resource depletion (it almost makes me proud to live in
Sweden, the most well documented example of this - government nosiness
at least produces useful statistics after a few centuries).
