Summary
"Far away from the Chinese economic miracle...is a vast rural hinterland, where life goes on much as it has for generations, with one extraordinary difference: "normal" parents are permitted by the state to have only a single child. 'The Dark Road' is the story of one such family..."--inside front cover

Summary
The Chinese dissident author of Stick Out Your Tongue explores the human cost of China's one-child policy as reflected by a rural family on the run from the state, describing how a cultural imperative to have a son prompted their decision to conceive a second child before becoming subject to cruel government practices of enforced abortion and sterilization
