A Man-Made Disaster: A Log Of The Birth Control Campaign In 1975 In China

In order to relieve the tremendous political, social, and economic pressure caused by population explosion, the birth control campaign in China was implemented. The book records what a 19-years-old girl exactly experienced as a birth control task-force member in years of 1975 - 1976. Focusing on a grassroots level birth control task-force, this book introduces the political, social, and economic background back then in China, tells in detail how the team members carried out their mandatory duties, and vividly narrates stories of villagers during the campaign. Displaying the unprocessed, painful struggles among values, morals, ethics, and emotions of the task force members, the grassroots leaders, and the victims and their families as well, this book presents the reader with humble but genuine first-handed material to look into such a serious issue that had drawn international attention.
