First Online: 23 December 2008. Drawing from 20 years of intensive fieldwork and utilizing over 140 interviews with key figures of the Chinese population planning establishment, Greenhalgh shows how cybernetic engineers from the Seventh Machine Ministry discursively dominated the policy formation process and paved the political pathway for the One-Child Law that was officially promulgated in 1980.
China's 'one child' policy is often dismissed in the West as the misguided work of an alien civilization with fundamentally flawed conceptions of human rights. Greenhalgh shows how, on the contrary, it was scientific aspirations and a thirst for high-tech rationality, imported from the military to the civilian sphere, that co-produced this particular excess of planning in the post-Mao era. This is not just a devastating critique of Chinese population policy, but a thought-provoking look at the dark side of the politics of science.
Focusing on the historic period 1978-80, when China was just reen China's one-child rule is unassailably one of the most controversial social policies of all time.
