Nanking 1937: Memory and Healing

Front Cover
Fei Fei Li, Robert Sabella, David Liu
M.E. Sharpe, Dec 26, 2001 - History - 278 pages
In recent years the international community has begun to scrutinize and, in many cases, condemn the atrocities that took place in Nanking in 1937. This is all part of a larger worldwide movement in which both nations and multinational groups are attempting to reach closure regarding past atrocities and inhumanities.

By treating the Nanking Massacre from a variety of perspectives, and by taking the position that all human atrocities have common features, this work reaches beyond aggressors and victims, admission and vindication, in search of solutions leading toward a more peaceful and harmonious international community.
