Exposes the causes of Asia's massive gender imbalance and its consequences across the globe that the world is missing 160 million women, equal to the entire female population of the US. Examines the issue of sex-selection and selective abortion that favours males, and argues that this is not a dying but a growing practice in the world, aided now by widely available and relatively cheap ultrasound tests.
