Product description

Review

A powerful new work of history and moral inquiry. Chang takes great care to establish an accurate accounting of the dimensions of the violence.--Chicago Tribune

Anyone interested in the relation between war, self-righteousness, and the human spirit will find The Rape of Nanking of fundamental importance. It is scholarly, an exciting investigation, and a work of passion. In places it is almost unbearable to read, but it should be readonly if the past is understood can the future be navigated.--Ross Terrill, author of Mao, China in Our Time, and Madame Mao

Heartbreaking.... An utterly compelling book. The descriptions of the atrocities raise fundamental questions not only about imperial Japanese militarism but the psychology of the torturers, rapists, and murderers.--Frederic Wakeman, director of the Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley

In her important new book ... Iris Chang, whose own grandparents were survivors, recounts the grisly massacre with understandable outrage.--Orville Schell, The New York Times Book Review

Iris Chang's research on the Nanking holocaust yields a new and expanded telling of this World War II atrocity and reflects thorough research. The book is excellent; its story deserves to be heard.--Beatrice S. Bartlett, professor of history, Yale University

Something beautiful, an act of justice, is occurring in America today concerning something ugly that happened long ago.... Because of Chang s book, the second rape of Nanking is ending.--George F. Will, syndicated columnist
