Item description for Two Is Enough: Family Planning in Indonesia Under the New Order, 1968-1998 by Anke Niehof...
Two Is Enough provides a comprehensive description of the Indonesian family planning program during the New Order regime of Suharto and explains the fertility transition that took place in Indonesia during the same period. The extent to which the Indonesian family planning program became part of peoples and especially womens everyday lives sets it apart from comparable programs in Asia.
The dramatic fertility decline that took place in Indonesia during 1968 to 1998 begs for an explanation. In this book, fertility decline is placed against a background of social, cultural, and economic change, and is related to the way the family planning program was designed and implemented. The impact of the family planning program cannot be isolated from the influence of other factors, such as a rise in age at marriage, womens higher levels of educational attainment, and increased family income.
