Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

An impressionistic study of crowding in the United States as ascertained from statistical information translated into endless rows of sprawling suburban houses, cities devouring the land, the world compressing itself into a sardine can. Voices comment on the appalling implications of an ever swelling world. Indicates the prblems which stem from over-population both in under-developed countries and in the United States.
