Abstract:

"On December 13, 1937, the Japanese army captured Nanjing and we nt on to wantonlymassacre disarmed Chinese soldiers and defenseless civilians in flagrant violation ofinternational conventions. The Nanjing Massacre forms one of the darkest chapters in20th-century world history.Researching this major historical event requires scholars worldwide to collect a variety ofprimary source material in different languages. Compiled by a group of historians fromabout ten universities and research institutions based in China and abroad, Human Memory:Solid Evidence of the Nanjing Massacre represents a major effort in this regard. Consistingof textual and pictorial evidence reproduced from major archives and libraries aroundthe world, the book falls into four parts--Chinese, Japanese, English, and other Westernlanguages. The book covers material created by victims, perpetrators, and important thirdparties in a diversity of formats: diaries, petitions, investig ation reports, news articles,tribunal documents, and photographs. To help readers to better understand the widerange of evidence, the editors have provided very useful annotations for each document orphotograph. Without a doubt, this publication holds some of the most vivid and soberingscenes in humanity's collective memory."
