While most people know about China's "one child policy", they usually don't stop to consider all of the social implications that come with it. In One Child, Mei Fong explores them and lays them out for us. Through male favoritism, adoption, fertility, retirement, adoption and more we begin to see just how far the policy reaches through Chinese society. Beginning in January of this year, the policy was relaxed to two children, but after reading this you may find yourself wondering if it's too little too late.
