That is what I try to do in this book.
A politician is likely to give formalistic and formulaic answers to the researcher's questions, whereas a scientist, even one subject to Leninist restrictions, is likely to speak more openly to a colleague in the scientific enterprise. Such rules and sanctions most definitely applied to the intellectuals involved in making the one-child policy. These hows and whys have profoundly shaped the account presented in this book. With its concern for population policy in broad social context, the Council was a good place from which to pursue these interests.
Despite—or because of—that critical voice, the sense of trust and the personal connections that developed opened doors to top policy makers and arenas of policymaking rarely accessible to foreign scholars in any domain of PRC policy. When I was based at the Population Council, I operated as an insider in the world of international population science and an insider-outsider in the field of Chinese population science. This book is the result. In that same year I also met for the first time with the space scientists and engineers who were the main proponents of a strict one-child-for-all policy.
