"'One child.' With those two words, China launched one of the largest
political, biological, and social upheavals of modern times. In a
remarkably researched and thoughtful book, Susan Greenhalgh
approaches this decades-long struggle armed with political science,
anthropology, and science studies. The result is a book to be
reckoned with in all these disciplines."-Peter L. Galison, Harvard

China's one-child rule is unassailably one of the most controversial
social policies of all time. In the first book of its kind, Susan
Greenhalgh draws on twenty years of research into China's population
politics to explain how the leaders of a nation of one billion
decided to limit all couples to one child. Focusing on the historic
period 1978-80, when China was just reentering the global capitalist
system after decades of self-imposed isolation, Greenhalgh documents
the extraordinary manner in which a handful of leading aerospace
engineers hijacked the population policymaking process and formulated
a strategy that treated people like missiles.
