Losing the new China : a story of American commerce, desire, and betrayal by Ethan Gutmann( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arriving in Beijing in 1998, Ethan Gutmann rapidly made his way into the expatriate community of American entrepreneurs seeking riches in the New China. In this well-catered equivalent of a corporate boot camp, Gutmann was indoctrinated in the creed that China's growth presented untapped opportunities for profit. As he worked his way into comfortable positions at a Chinese television documentary company and a public affairs firm leading U.S. politicians on choreographed tours of the New China, he became an insider." "What Gutmann discovered in the company meetings, cocktail parties, and after-hours expat haunts made him uneasy. Motorola reps bragged of routinely bribing Chinese officials for market access; Asia Global Crossing executives burned through company expense accounts while racking up massive losses for the corporation; PR consultants provided svelte Mongolian prostitutes and five-star hotel suites for home office delegations. In Beijing's expat fast lane, success was measured not only by market share, but also in the ability to pay off favors by lobbying for Chinese interests in Washington. Treating the New China as a combination El Dorado and Lotus Land, American businessmen allowed themselves to be drawn into a hallucinatory Orientalist dream world of easy money and moral complicity."--Jacket
The slaughter : mass killings, organ harvesting, and China's secret solution to its dissident problem by Ethan Gutmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The inside story of China's organ transplant business and its macabre connection with internment camps and killing fields for arrested dissidents, especially the adherents of Falun Gong. Mass murder is alive and well. That is the stark conclusion of this comprehensive investigation into the Chinese state's secret program to get rid of political dissidents while profiting from the sale of their organs--in many cases to Western recipients. Based on interviews with top-ranking police officials and Chinese doctors who have killed prisoners on the operating table, veteran China analyst Ethan Gutmann has produced a riveting insider's account--culminating in a death toll that will shock the world. Why would the Chinese leadership encourage such a dangerous perversion of their medical system? To solve the puzzle, Gutmann journeyed deep into the dissident archipelago of Falun Gong, Tibetans, Uighurs and House Christians, uncovering an ageless drama of resistance, eliciting confessions of deep betrayal and moments of ecstatic redemption. In an age of compassion fatigue, Gutmann relies on one simple truth: those who have made it back from the gates of hell have stories to tell. And no matter what baggage the reader may bring along, their preconceptions of China will not survive the trip"--
Hard To Believe( Visual )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's happened before : governments killing their own citizens for their political or spiritual beliefs. But it's never happened like this. Hard to Believe is a serious investigation into the issue of forced live organ harvesting from Chinese prisoners of conscience, and the response -- or lack of it -- around the world. From an author's 7-year investigation to a doctor's confession; the determination of the son of a Holocaust survivor; to the persistence of a culturally-challenged victim community, Hard to Believe explores the mystery of why so few people seem to be paying attention to a crime so horrific it goes beyond belief"--Container

Medical genocide : hidden mass murder in China's organ transplant industry( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"China now performs more organ transplants than any nation in the world yet has few voluntary donors. While the government has admitted to harvesting organs from death row prisoners, they account for a tiny fraction of transplants performed in the country. Based on a decade of research, this documentary uncovers the true source of these organs: prisoners of conscience killed on demand. The largest group of victims are practicioners of Falun Gong, a mediation practice revolving around self-improvement based on the values of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance."--Container
