Synopsis

In The Pink Pagoda, Dr. James Garrow tells two stories: his personal involvement in helping rescue more than 36,000 Chinese baby girls from death, and the tragic story of a widely used and malicious cultural practice that crosses borders and spans centuries. Transitioning from reluctant participant in an off-the-books adoption program to a visible champion for the rights of these babies whose parents wished to set them aside, Garrow's story parallels our own. Most Westerners are only vaguely aware of the extent to which China's one-baby-per-household restriction has played out in that country and around the world and what they can do to stop it.
