Description - The Demographic Struggle for Power by Milica Zarkovic Bookman

Today's demographic struggle for power translates itself into an inter-ethnic war of numbers. The goal of this war of numbers is to increase the economic and political power of an ethnic group relative to other groups, and the method by which this is achieved entails the increase in size of one population relative to others. In describing this struggle, the book asks - and answers - three questions: What is it that ethnic groups think they can achieve by augmenting their numbers? By what methods do leaders of ethnic groups actually manipulate demographic characteristics in their struggle for power? How can such demographic struggles for power be avoided and thus potentially explosive inter-ethnic conflicts diffused? This book offers suggestions for structural alterations within states that will sever the link between ethnic size and power, and thus eliminate the rationale for the demographic struggle for power.
