by Iris Chang
"In December 1937, Japanese troops entered the city of Nanking, China. In less than two months, they murdered more than 300,000 civilians and raped more than 80,000 women. Chang's book was the first nonfiction account of the event. Iris Chang wrote so eloquently of the most horrible aspect of our race, that she must have had a heart as big as any that ever felt love and compassion for her species." -MARGALIT FOX In memory of Iris Chang who died November 9, 2004.
