      Kindle Tombstone ePUB Ê î mdeparenpar.co î tombstone book, Tombstone PDF/EPUBEdit Nothing to do with the book but everything to do with the subject political famine read this about North Korea and cannibalism In 2013 Beyond wicked to say about the most terrible book I've ever read? It's a five star read without doubt but how can I say I enjoyed a book that documents the demise by starvation by purely political starvation of 36000000 people It won't surprise you to know that this book is banned in ChinaThe book wasn't brief It detailed each political step that led down to the hell where people died where they fell where there wasn't anyone strong enough to bury them where a train chuffing through miles of countryside would pass corpse after corpse after corpse It detailed what the people ate when all their food had been taken from them to meet 'targets' how they ate bark how they ate ver

      Kindle Tombstone ePUB Ê î mdeparenpar.co î tombstone book, Tombstone PDF/EPUBAuthor Yang Jisheng tells us he wrote this book as a memorial to his foster father who starved to death during the Great Chinese Famine of 1959 61 the largest famine in human history Estimates of those who died range from the official Chinese government figure of 17 million to as many as 45 50 million The author devotes a chapter of his book to assessing the various studies and concludes that at least 36 million people died than the total number of deaths in the entirety of the First World War This catastrophe did not come about because of war or drought or a crop disease All of this immensity of suffering – all of it – was caused by the policies of the Chinese Communist Party and in particular by the single individual of Mao Zedong Some of these policies were so insane that it’s difficult to comprehend how they could have been devised by human beings otherwise capable of rational thought It’s a warning of what happens when people become so

      Kindle Tombstone ePUB Ê î mdeparenpar.co î tombstone book, Tombstone PDF/EPUBNutshell a mix of five star primary reportage archival work with one star reckless inferences commentaryText is like Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago insofar as it is an indictment proceeding from the position of internal critiue written by an author as yet subject to the jurisdiction of the accused state It is therefore written at the writer’s dire risk and should be regarded as proof of the author's integrity and boldness Unlike Solzhenitsyn however this is no literary investigation stylized ironic or otherwise non journalistic Both Yang and Solzhenitsyn rely heavily on an accumulation of anecdotes backed with statistics In itself the accumulation of anecdotes the parade of horribles can't be overemphasized The statistics drawn from internal archives make this point all the persuasive This isn't to say that the anecdotes aren't an attempt at naked manipulation; recitation of individual tragedies amidst the deaths of mill

      Kindle Tombstone ePUB Ê î mdeparenpar.co î tombstone book, Tombstone PDF/EPUBThe statistics and anecdotes are fairly horrifying and the sheer profusion drills in how widespread the famine was But for me the most fascinating part of Tombstone was how the vast Chinese government hierarchy rippled policies and misinformation up and down it how the local cadres tried to bow to the demands they were hearing from higher up how the higher ups took the falsified statistics and claims often at face value and how the highest officials in Beijing seem almost childishly helpless as they stagger between skepticism of reports given them and unthinking acceptance of positive results Mao particularly comes to mind in his constant swerving between left deviationism and right deviationism as he tries to get communal kitchens to work and takes at face value the harvest figures and sputniks even as in other incidents he scoffs at a local official telling him flat out that such yields were simply impossible as
