Anthropology professor Susan Greenhalgh’s Just One Child: Science and Policy in Deng’s China has received an honorable mention from the Society for Cultural Anthropology’s inaugural Gregory Bateson Book Prize.  Reviewed positively in both Science and Nature magazines, the book draws on her more than 20 years of research into China's population politics to explore how a team of Chinese missile scientists convinced the country’s government to adopt a strict one-child per couple policy as a means for controlling population growth. She will be recognized for her work at the 2009 American Anthropological Association annual meeting in Philadelphia this December where she will be leading a discussion on imperfect international policy translation.
