Social Scientist Specialising In China's Policies
SOCIAL SCIENTIST SPECIALISING IN CHINA'S POLICIES IN AUCKLAND 26-29 SEPTEMBER 2002
AUCKLAND, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --
Steven W. Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, based in Washington, D.C., will address Family Life International's Conference on Life, Faith, and Family this Sunday, September 29th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on "China, the United Nations and Population." The media is cordially invited to attend the event. Mosher is available in New Zealand 26-29 September.
Mosher has a long career of research and writing on family demographic issues, and is an expert on China military affairs who has briefed the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) about China on many occasions.
In 1979 he became the first American social scientist to conduct extensive field research in the People's Republic of China, observing first hand the brutal way that country was enforcing its newly announced one-child policy. Last year, he organized an investigation of U.N. supported forced abortion programs in China, and briefed the U.S. State Department. This July, $34 million in U.S. spending was cut from the U.N. Population Fund because of its support of China's notorious forced abortion program.
Mosher's best selling book "A Mother's Ordeal: One Woman's Fight Against China's One-Child Policy," leaves no doubt of the enormous human suffering that policy continues to cause 20 years later.
His latest book "Hegemon: China's Plan to Dominate Asia and the World" was published by Encounter Books in 2000. Mosher's other books include "China Attacks" (2000), "China Misperceived: American Illusions and Chinese Reality" (Harper Collins, 1990), "Journey to the Forbidden China" (MacMillan, 1985), and "Broken Earth: The Rural Chinese" (MacMillan, 1983).
His articles on such topics as the Peruvian sterilization campaign, the birth dearth, and female infanticide have appeared in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, Reader's Digest, The New Republic, National Review, Reason, The Asian Wall Street Journal, Freedom Review and the Ladies Home Journal. Complimentary books are available to members of the Press.
