Overview

We pose the fundamental question, What effect do the processes that have come to be known as 'political development' have on birthrates and death rates in national populations? This connection has eluded rigorous and systematic analysis until now because there has been no way of tracing the developmental pattern of the political system in any rigorous and systematic fashion. For the most part, few people have even imagined that such a connection existed. For what links could there be between the growing power of government and the reproductive behavior of the population under its jurisdiction? But we have in fact found a very important connection, and its implications are immense.
