1. Demography is destiny … or not In the background to the emergence of the First World War, the alliance between France and Russia played a crucial role. While political allegiances had led to this, it is also recognized that it was France losing the demographic race with Germany which also promoted the alliance. France received a huge reserve of Russian manpower in return for sending its capital and technology. Twenty-first-century Britain’s multicultural society emerged from its declining ability to replace its population by births alone during the second half of the 20th century. This encouraged an exchange of migrant

2. From 55,000 to 7 billion Homo ergaster in Africa and Homo erectus in East Asia. New genetic evidence is transforming our understanding of human evolution. This data suggests that all modern humans, African and non-African alike, descend from one homogeneous ancestral population in the last 100,000 years. This goes against earlier theories that African separated from non-African populations much earlier.

8. The future of public administration As we have seen, both the field and the practice of public administration have been extraordinarily dynamic. Therefore, their future is impossible to predict. While essential public services, ranging from waste management to public education, are not likely to disappear any time soon, the manner in which their administrative functions are carried out and evaluated is likely to change considerably. As we have seen in our brief journey, dramatic changes taking place at the global level are bringing radical shifts in public administration.

1. Origins Environmental problems Nature is disappearing fast, or so we are led to believe. Fewer whales swim the oceans. Fewer tigers stalk the Sundarbans of Bengal. Many coral reefs are bleaching, putting their polychrome communities at risk. The habitats of orang-utans in Sumatra and Borneo are threatened. Freak hurricanes blight the Caribbean and shred its trees. Closer at hand, garden birds and butterflies are dwindling in number. In Britain, even bluebells and Wordsworth’s wild daffodils are said to be endangered. What, we may wonder, is going on? The natural world has long ceased to be a reliable backdrop to

3. The fathers of demographic thought Observations were first published. For while there were population censuses well before this date, including information about numbers of deaths and births, this was the first attempt to examine statistical regularities inherent within these numbers.
