This book definitely has conservative leanings. It actually helped me understand the conservative mindset in modern America. The book constantly admits that immigrants are the only reason why birth rates are increasing in industrialized nations, but never explores the reason the native population's birth rate is falling outside of social issues. Why is there an increase in IVF? Also, why are only ethnic groups that practice social and genetic purism seem to be the only groups suffering population decrease? What about the rest of the world? Why are many experiencing population booms with less resources, but with constant GDP growth? The book was well research, but never seemed to answer the really hard questions. I'd still recommend it as a good read. Just so you can understand the rise of nationalism and authoritarianism in many industrialized countries.
The author comes to the topic with a clear stand point, but that doesn't matter too much, because he makes his arguments with painstaking factuality - always basing his claims on numerous studies and statistics.
It's a topic that will dramatically transform human societies in our lifetimes, but that few people have become aware of. This book including the detailed comparison of possible policy measures and their effect are therefore very timely and relevant to anyone interested in the future fate of the world and its people's.
