520    "Lianyungang, a booming port city, has China's most 
       extreme gender ratio for children under four: 163 boys for
       every 100 girls. These numbers don't seem terribly grim, 
       but in ten years, the skewed sex ratio will pose a 
       colossal challenge. By the time those children reach 
       adulthood, their generation will have twenty-four million 
       more men than women. The prognosis for China's neighbors 
       is no less bleak: Asia now has 163 million females 
       "missing" from its population. Gender imbalance reaches 
       far beyond Asia, affecting Georgia, Eastern Europe, and 
       cities in the U.S. where there are significant immigrant 
       populations. The world, therefore, is becoming 
       increasingly male, and this mismatch is likely to create 
       profound social upheaval. Historically, eras in which 
       there have been an excess of men have produced periods of 
       violent conflict and instability. Mara Hvistendahl has 
       written a stunning, impeccably-researched book that does 
       not flinch from examining not only the consequences of the
       misbegotten policies of sex selection but Western 
       complicity with them"--|cProvided by publisher.
