Editorial Reviews


"Perhaps no feature of social life has greater influence on international politics, and certainly none is less well understood, than demography. The Graying of the Great Powers presents a clear picture of the population trends of the twenty-first century and a provocative analysis of their consequences for the politics and economics of the next four decades." --Michael Mandelbaum, Johns Hopkins University, author of Democracy s Good Name: The Rise and Risks of the World s Most Popular Form of Government

"We are on the cusp of the most profound shift in global power and influence in more than a century. The Graying of the Great Powers helps us understand why this is so, how demographic and other trends will interact, and, most importantly, what we should do to manage this historic transformation." --Robert L. Hutchings, Princeton University, former Chairman of the U.S. National Intelligence Council

"The Graying of the Great Powers is a thoughtful and valuable first step toward an urgently needed assessment of what today s momentous global demographic changes may portend for the friendly--and unfriendly--competition between states in the world arena in the decades ahead." --Nicholas Eberstadt, American Enterprise Institute, author of Europe s Coming Demographic Challenge: Unlocking the Value of Health
