WYA book recommendation: “Unnatural Selection”

Mara Hvistendahl’s Unnatural Selection investigates the practice of sex-selective abortion, primarily in Asia during the later half of the 20th century.  Influenced by the Western world’s promotion of population control as a means for economic development, various countries in Asia came to allow the widespread practice of sex-selective abortion.  One result is a significant gender imbalance with serious consequences that Hivistendhal investigates.
