Summary

China's one-child population policy, first initiated in 1979, has had an enormous effect on the country. This book looks at the impact of the government's strict control over planning and population growth on the family, the wider society and the country's demography. Issues covered include fertility and population policy, family planning policy and contraceptive use, patterns of family and marriage, biological and social determinants of fertility and China's future population trends.
