Reiner Klingholz, Director, Berlin Institute for Population and Development, Germany
"Demographic developments play an important part in the internal policy agenda as well as in foreign affairs. This book provides excellent background for a better understanding of the importance of population dynamics in politics."

"This book is an added value to the readers' understanding of these young societies' behaviour towards major indicators that affect quality of life, justice and access to services. "

“On the wake of the Arab Spring, scholars have diverged on their perspectives of its consequences. What has been missing in these discussions though is the consideration of the region's demographic structures. Population Dynamics in Muslim Countries fills this gap and brings in a sobering perspective.”
Elham Manea, Professor of Political Science, Zurich University, Switzerland
“The uprisings taking place throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa since early 2011 which are reshaping the political and social landscape of the entire region have one root cause: population growth. This book is a must read to all those interested in one of the most consequential developments unfolding before our eyes.“
Heinrich Kreft, Ambassador, German Foreign Ministry, Germany
