Description:
Rampant sex-selective abortion has contributed to the disappearance of an estimated 160 million females from Asia's population. And gender imbalance reaches far beyond South and East Asia, affecting the Caucasus countries, Eastern Europe, and even some groups in the United States-a rate of diffusion so rapid that one prominent expert on the topic compares it to an epidemic. So many parents now select for boys that they have skewed the sex ratio at birth of the entire world. Mara Hvistendahl's expansive, impeccably-researched investigation tells a stunning story that examines not only the consequences of the misbegotten policies underlying sex selection but also the West's role in creating them.
