The Demographic Revolution in Modern Egypt describes the dramatic transition of Egypt’s fertility and mortality rates over the last two decades, from staggeringly high to surprisingly low. Warren C. Robinson and Fatma H. El-Zanaty delve into the reasons for the decline in fertility, including the relative success of Egypt’s recent public initiatives in family planning. The authors compellingly show the importance of Egypt’s continued demographic stability for Egypt, the Middle East, and indeed the world. They also point to Egypt’s optimistic progress as a model for other countries where out-of-control birthrates are wreaking havoc with economic and social development.
