Eric’s Research Interests

Eric’s recent books have focused on the way national identity intersects with political demography – the politics of population change – and ideology. He has a continuing interest in questions of cultural left ideology, dominant-group ethnic identity and religious demography. His most recent trade press book, Whiteshift, argues that ethnic change underlies national populism and polarization and will not abate without a decline of diversity through ethnic assimilation. His previous book, Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth, argues that the more religious people are, regardless of income, faith tradition or education, the more children they have. Religious countries have faster population growth than secular ones which is why immigrants are typically much more religious than their secular host societies. The cumulative effect of immigration and religious fertility is to slow or reverse the secularisation process in the West.

His latest book, entitled The Third Awokening (May 2024 US/Cdn) or Taboo (July 2024, UK/World) is a critical examination of the cultural left and ‘woke’ ideology. His previous book Whiteshift argues that ethnic change underlies national populism and polarization and will not abate without a decline of diversity through ethnic assimilation. His prior book, Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth, contends that the more religious people are, regardless of income, faith tradition or education, the more children they have.
