Per Boek Wijzer Auteur: Mei Fong
For over three decades, China exercised unprecedented control over the reproductive habits of its billion citizens. Now, with its economy faltering just as it seemed poised to become the largest in the world, the Chinese government has brought an end to its one-child policy. It may once have seemed a shortcut to riches, but it has had a profound effect on society.
Drawing on eight years spent documenting its repercussions, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mei Fong reveals a dystopian legacy of second children refused documentation by the state, only children supporting their elderly parents, and villages filled with ineligible bachelors. An exceptional piece of on-the-ground journalism, One Child humanizes the policy that defined China and warns that the ill-effects of its legacy will be felt for decades to come.
