The author traces the one-child-per-family population control policy in China. His primary sources are Chinese documents, many translated here for the first time. The book consists of 89 pages of text, an appendix on infanticide, an appendix of reactions to two new articles on China's policy, and 71 pages of footnotes. The book's documentations, translations, and careful footnoting will make it of interest to specialists in the field, but it will be of less interest to the educated layperson who wants to understand and evaluate the policy. The author does not give a balanced weighing of arguments, nor does he flesh out the ethical dilemmas posed by China's controversial policy. The book will solidify the views of those who find the policy repelling, but will not necessarily inform those uncertain of their views.

This book documents the human suffering caused by China s effort to control its population growth. It tells how government policy has encouraged extreme measures, including forced sterilizations and abortions, even when it publicly condemns them. The author offers documentation from Chinese sources. Because of the one-child policy for example, the male-female balance has been threatened, as peasants, fearful of not having a son to support them in old age, kill thier female babies.
