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 w

    PDF/EPUB Yang Jisheng à Tombstone MOBI ¶ à tombstone mobile, Tombstone PDF/EPUBI give it a four because of the research and the context that the research is put in which is remarkable important and devastating It isn't an easy read and certainly not an enjoyable one It is utterly horrifying 36 million dead according to the author who seems to have done a thorough job of backing up that claim than previous books have done with their numbers from starvation and violence associated with the famine It is as terrifying a depiction of the horrors perpetrated by ideology on society as I have ever read If there are any lessons to be learned after getting through it they are of the necessity of speaking truth to power and the vital importance of a free and independent press as any society's first line of defense It is nauseating

    PDF/EPUB Yang Jisheng à Tombstone MOBI ¶ à tombstone mobile, 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 acce
