Alexander Kulischer [Alexandre Koulicher] (1890-1942), a former professor at Petrograd University (St. Petersburg, Russia), who emigrated to France after the Russian Revolution of October 1917, may be considered one of the pioneers of the theory of demographic transition. However, his contribution to the development of this theory has gone almost unnoticed and underrated. This article presents the intellectual biography of Alexander Kulischer, and it analyzes his views on the demographic transition (demographic revolution), as he expressed them in his publications in German and in French in the early 1930s. Two of these forgotten publications written in French are republished (in the language of the original and in Russian translation) in the appendix to the article.
