China's one-child family policy has been applauded by demographers and condemned by human rights activists. This study argues that most city district Chinese women would prefer more children yet comply with the one-child policy because they accept the moral legitimacy of state policy.


'An excellent introduction to China's population problems and policies and an in-depth study of the ways those policies are viewed by urban women.' - Delia Davin, Bulletin of SOAS
