Rooting his position in modern life sciences and particularly in sociobiology and neurobiology, he establishes an IMPish model that is interactional, mentalist, and populational.

Interactional in that both heredity and environment are credited for due influence on individuals traits- mentalist in that individuals actions can be purposeful rather than simply determined- and populational in his insistence that the unique persona must not be slighted in the rush to fashion statistics.--Applying his behavioral principles most notably relevant to self-selection and using examples derived from modern political action, White examines the importance of these fundamental orientations in the social and political orders.

The work has implications for policy assessment and re-formulation. It constitutes a challenge to much of the widely accepted contemporary political theory and public policy approaches.
