Summary

Political demography is defined as the study of population change and its relationship to both politics and government. Population change consists of several aspects: Population size, age structure, fertility, migration and mortality. This book attempts to answer a number of important questions related to this field of knowledge, such as: The role of demographic change in revolutions or the rise and fall of societies; how demographic factors affect current geopolitics, financial and economic policies, ethnic and religious conflicts, or patterns of voting and democratic transformation in states; and whether the global demographic transition will affect the dynamics of global power.

Political demography has not received the importance it deserves in the field of political science. The chapters of this book prove that demography is a critical component in shaping the political process, and its impact can be direct or indirect. For example, no credible political scientist can ignore the role of economic incentives, institutions or culture. Political scientists cannot ignore demography in their quest to understand patterns of political identities, conflict and change in societies. The study of international security and policy cannot proceed without understanding how key concepts and data on population changes affect these issues, especially in our age of demographic turmoil.

This book is a recent and distinctive contribution to the crystallization and methodologization of the different visions that have so far been presented in a loose manner, in terms of demography and political science.
