Summary
This is the story of a society reversing deeply held worldviews and revolutionising its demography. In parts of 18th century Japan, couples raised only two or three children, resulting in shrinking villages and dwindling domain headcounts. In Eastern Japan population growth resumed in the 19th century, with fertility rates approaching six children per woman. This reverse fertility transition suggests that the demographic history of the world is more interesting than paradigms of unidirectional change would have us believe, and that the future of fertility and population growth may yet hold many surprises
