✏The Missing Girls and Women of China Hong Kong and Taiwan Book Summary : In the past century, tens of millions of women and girls have disappeared in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. There are many reasons: the women variously were sold as “foreign spouses”; imprisoned for their political beliefs; taken to night clubs or massage parlors to work as “escorts”; provided as “comfort women” to soldiers; or murdered by female corpse dealers and sold as “ghost brides” to families looking to give their deceased sons wives in the afterlife. The youngest girls fell victim to infanticide, the tragic result of a “one child” law in a male-dominated society. As a result of the gender imbalance these disappearances created, countless young males now suffer from the “marriage squeeze,” remaining single without families of their own. This sociological study explores the institutional factors, develops a typology for these populations, and lays a foundation for the examination of lost populations in the future.

✏Lost and Found Book Summary : In 1979, the Chinese government famously introduced The Single Child Policy to control population growth. Nearly 40 years later, the result is an estimated 20 million "missing girls" in the population from 1980-2010. In Lost and Found, John James Kennedy and Yaojiang Shi focus on village-level implementation of the one-child policy and the level of mutual-noncompliance between officials and rural families. Through in-depth interviews with rural parents and local leaders, they reveal that many had strong incentives not to comply with the birth control policy because larger families meant increased labor and income. In this sober exploration of China's Single Child Policy throughout the reform period, the authors more broadly show how governance by grassroots cadres with greater local autonomy has affected China in the past and the challenges for resolving center-versus-locality contradictions in governance that lie ahead.

✏Mystery of the Missing Girls Book Summary : James M. Dixon is an award winning author, who has written two other children's books. He retired from teaching junior high school where he always tried to instill values in his students. Now he tackles the concept of bravery. Evil has existed since the beginning of mankind.

Holmes, Joe Ball and Jane Toppan were all classic serial killers long before psychopaths were known. If you have never heard of these people; good for you. This story asks the questions, "What would the famous child detective, Nancy Drew, do if she came face to face with a psychopathic serial killer?" More so, what would any young person do? What would you do? Would you be brave enough to risk your life to prove a killer lived in your neighborhood?

✏The Missing Italian Girl Book Summary : In the third crime novel in the acclaimed Bernard Martin mystery series, young immigrant girls are disappearing into the depths of turn-of-the-century Paris. On a sultry night in June 1897, Pyotr Ivanovich Balenov, a young Russian, and two young women transport a dead man through the narrow streets of a working class neighborhood in northeastern Paris. They throw the body into the canal and the girls flee to the Latin Quarter to hide with one of the Russian’s anarchist “comrades.” They do not realize they, too, are being watched. Their subsequent disappearance and the violent acts that follow will set Clarie Martin, a teacher and mother of a toddler, and her husband, magistrate Bernard Martin (last seen in Cezanne’s Quarry and The Blood of Lorraine) on a dangerous quest to rescue them from a vicious killer.

✏The Missing Girl Book Summary : Fiction. A driver lures a young girl into his car. A woman recalls a not-so- innocent childhood game. A man reveals much more than he'll ever tell the police. After a high school girl is murdered, everyone has an opinion. A girl wakes beside a dumpster to find slut scrawled on her body--and that's not the worst thing that happened last night. A girl speaks up after a crime--but is she telling the truth? And could you blame her if she's not? The girls who populate Jacqueline Doyle's THE MISSING GIRL have vanished. Or their childhoods have gone missing. In Doyle's collection of flash fictions, the voicelessness of the missing is palpable, the girls' stories whispered into a vacuum or recounted from the point of view of a predator, murderer, or voyeur. Violence lurks below the surface here, haunts the back pages of newspapers, takes up residence in your dreams. You know a missing girl. "Full of sex, lies, and vivid insights into the human compulsion to do the wrong thing, these stories go down easy but hit hard. A powerful and provocative collection."--Frances Lefkowitz "In these dark and edgy stories, Jacqueline Doyle has made a dispassionate study of the degradation of girls and the twisted hearts of those who harm them. Most chilling is the ease with which these characters fall prey to violence and how quickly depravity finds its way past the surface of ordinary situations. Prepare to be very disturbed."--Elizabeth McKenzie "Jacqueline Doyle knows where you live. The stories in her collection, THE MISSING GIRL, have your address and even after the first read (and you will be back, she knows that), these stories will be moving in to stay. Whatever your usual role in a culture with an undeniable instinct for violence, Doyle's writing lures you to do more than dismiss it, more than abhor it, and yet this isn't a welcome to merely spectate, there is nothing gratuitous here unless life itself is gratuitous. In fact, Doyle has found the thread through that menace that surrounds us and is in us and is calling you in to hold onto your bit of it, to witness. Here, Doyle choreographs the everyday dance between safety and terror, between taking the chances we need to live and not living at all. THE MISSING GIRL is a masterful work and a must read."--Tupelo Hassman "Dark, haunting, relevant, cohesive, and incredibly well conceived. I absolutely loved THE MISSING GIRL."--Simone Muench
