Political Demography

How Population Changes Are Reshaping International Security and National Politics

Edited by Jack A. Goldstone and Eric P. Kaufmann
Edited by Monica Duffy Toft

Demography is the most predictable of the social sciences: children born in the last five years will be the new workers, voters, soldiers, and potential insurgents of 2025 and the political elites of the 2050s. Whether in the West or the developing world, political scientists urgently need to understand the tectonics of demography in order to grasp the full context of today's political developments. This book begins to fill the gap from a global and historical perspective and with the hope that scholars and policymakers will take its insights on board to develop enlightened policies for our collective future.
