Promotional Information

In this wide-ranging and impressive work, Greenhalgh examines the evolution of China's population policy in the post-Mao era. She notes that during the past thirty years the role of the state in managing China's population and the bodies of its citizens has expanded enormously, involving efforts to promote women's health, foster higher population 'quality,' and even combat infertility. If we want to understand the challenges that China's rise presents to the rest of the world, we need to appreciate the centrality of all aspects of population management in the strategic thinking of Chinese elites. Cultivating Global Citizens provides a vital guide to this controversial terrain. -- Martin K. Whyte, editor, One Country, Two Societies: Rural-Urban Inequality in Contemporary China
