Essay describing the book as an answer to the problem they posed in their Whither Away? A Study of Race Psychology and the Factors Leading to Australia’s National Decline (1934), which focused on the falling birth rate. Their solution, a Federal Union of countries, is based on Clarence K[irshman] Streit (See 1939 Streit). In addition, they argue that people must be educated for democracy (both in improved teaching of citizenship in democracies and in the elements of democracy in non-democratic countries), the political system must be reformed so as to attract the best people, and there must be much more community involvement. See also 1972 Nye.
