The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0140277447

[SR: 449558], Paperback, [EAN: 9780140277449], Penguin, Penguin, Book, [PU: Penguin], 1999-03-25, Penguin, The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II, Some books you read for pleasure; others you read because they are too important to be ignored. Iris Chang's The Rape of Nanking falls firmly into the second category. What most people in the West know about the Sino-Japanese war can usually be scribbled on the back of a postcard. It was a long way away, had nothing to do with us and besides the Second World War was a much bigger deal. This parochialism and chauvinism has obliterated one of the most obscene chapters from the already overflowing pages of man's inhumanity to man in the 20th century. After fierce fighting in Shanghai, the Japanese occupied the old Chinese imperial city of Nanking on 13 December 1937. Over the next six weeks, the Japanese massacred more than 300,000 Chinese and raped more than 80,000 women. But these bare figures don't begin to describe the atrocities. The Japanese indulged in execution contests to see who could behead the most civilians in the shortest time, they burned their victims, they buried them alive, they set dogs on them. No form of mutilation and torture was too extreme or bizarre and no one escaped. Men, women, children and babies were all butchered. What makes all this even more unbelievable is that there was no reason for this other than sadism. The Japanese army ran riot and indulged its blood lust; moreover it didn't even attempt to conceal what it was doing from eyewitnesses. The killings and the rapes all took place in public. So how come we all know so little about it? The answers, as ever, are part coincidence and part Realpolitik. The onset of the Second World War did overshadow events in China and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki did help to cast the Japanese as victims, rather than aggressors, in some people's eyes in the post-war period. And in the aftermath of the war, everyone had a vested interest in keeping their mouth shut. Japan turned from enemy of the US to ally--as one of the strongest bastions of capitalism in a Far East they feared was becoming progressively more communist. Moreover, the People's Republic of China conspired to play down Nanking as it sought to gain an economic foothold in the world and didn't dare to alienate the West in the process. So it is to Iris Chang's credit that she has dragged Nanking back into our collective consciousness. She doesn't sensationalise, neither does she spare us any of the details. She describes events from the point of view of the Japanese, the Chinese and the independent Westerners living in Nanking, but even so she fails to come up with a convincing explanation for the scale of the atrocities. --John Crace, 1025612, Subjects, 349777011, Antiquarian, Rare & Collectable, 91, Art, Architecture & Photography, 67, Biography, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 507848, Calendars, Diaries & Annuals, 69, Children's Books, 274081, Comics & Graphic Novels, 71, Computing & Internet, 72, Crime, Thrillers & Mystery, 496792, Education Studies & Teaching, 62, Fiction, 66, Food & Drink, 275835, Gay & Lesbian, 74, Health, Family & Lifestyle, 65, History, 64, Home & Garden, 63, Horror, 89, Humour, 275738, Languages, 61, Mind, Body & Spirit, 73, Music, Stage & Screen, 275389, Poetry, Drama & Criticism, 59, Reference, 58, Religion & Spirituality, 88, Romance, 5106747031, School Books, 57, Science & Nature, 4034595031, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 564334, Scientific, Technical & Medical, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 55, Sports, Hobbies & Games, 83, Travel & Holiday, 52, Young Adult, 266239, Books

[EAN: 9780140277449], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Penguin Books, Harmondsworth], History|Asia|China, History|Asia|General, History|Historical Geography, History|Military|World War II, xi, 290 pp., illus., map, bib. notes, index; 21 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. Documents atrocities and war crimes committed by Japanese soldiers in China during World War II and the Western-sponsored cover-up in the post-war period. "In December 1937, the Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking. Within weeks, more than 300,000 Chinese civilians were systematically raped, tortured, and murdered - a death toll exceeding that of the atomic blasts of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. Using extensive interviews with survivors and newly discovered documents, Iris Chang has written what will surely be the definitive history of this horrifying episode. The Rape of Nanking tells the story from three perspectives: of the Japanese soldiers who performed it, of the Chinese civilians who endured it, and of a group of Europeans and Americans who refused to abandon the city and were able to create a safety zone that saved almost 300,000 Chinese. Among these was the Nazi John Rabe, an unlikely hero whom Chang calls the 'Oskar Schindler of China' and who worked tirelessly to protect the innocent and publicize the horror. More than just narrating the details of an orgy of violence, The Rape of Nanking analyzes the militaristic culture that fostered in the Japanese soldiers a total disregard for human life. Finally, it tells the appalling story: about how the advent of the Cold War led to a concerted effort on the part of the West and even the Chinese to stifle open discussion of this atrocity. Indeed, Chang characterizes this conspiracy of silence, that persists to this day, as 'a second rape.' / Iris Chang's numerous honors include the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation's Program on Peace and International Cooperation Award. Her work has appeared in many publications, including the New York Times, Newsweek, and the Los Angeles Times. She is also the author of the bestselling The Rape of Nanking, available from Penguin." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

China has endured much hardship in its history, as Iris Chang shows in her ably researched The Rape of Nanking, a book that recounts the horrible events in that eastern Chinese city under Japanese occupation in the late 1930s. Nanking, she writes, served as a kind of laboratory in which Japanese soldiers were taught to slaughter unarmed, unresisting civilians, as they would later do throughout Asia. Likening their victims to insects and animals, the Japanese commanders orchestrated a campaign in which several hundred thousand--no one is sure just how many--Chinese soldiers and noncombatants alike were killed. Chang turns up an unlikely hero in German businessman John Rabe, a devoted member of the Nazi party who importuned Adolf Hitler to intervene and stop the slaughter, and who personally saved the lives of countless residents of Nanking. She also suggests that the Japanese government pay reparations and apologize for its army's horrific acts of 60 years ago. 20th century,asia,china,education and reference,europe,foreign language study and reference,history,holocaust,japan,jewish Foreign Language Study & Reference, Penguin
