Replacement and Political Change 1959–70

  • David Butler

The parallel processes of emigration and immigration and of death and coming of age can have far-reaching political effects over the long term. In the short run their consequences must be smaller but may still be substantial. In this chapter we shall consider the role of replacement in political change in the years from 1959 to 1970. Inspection of the recent past has the advantage of limiting our view to a period for which our information is more ample. When we examine the 1960s we have less need of the speculative assumptions that must go into any judgment on the effects of replacement in decades longer past or in decades yet to come.
