CHOICE Review

Debate over the 1937 Nanking Massacre (Rape of Nanking) reaches a new level of sophistication with these valuable essays from the 1997 Princeton University Nanking 1937 Conference. Eleven articles by Chinese, Japanese, and Western scholars represent a wide variety of viewpoints on the atrocities committed by Japan's Imperial Army during the Chinese-Japanese War and WW II (1937-45). Whether progressive or revisionist in approach, these essays exhibit a common hope for a deeper and better understanding of that atrocity and its aftermath. The essays explore the debate and history of the Nanking Massacre from four different perspectives. First, Japanese and Western scholars appraise the influence of Nanking in the global context of 20th-century history and discuss the importance of continuing the debate for perceiving human grievances against war atrocities worldwide. Second, Chinese and Japanese authors offer their own versions of what happened when Japanese troops took over Nanking in the winter of 1937-38. Third, the book investigates the historiography of Nanking, especially reasons for different views of the event in Asia and the West. Finally, three essays offer foresights for the future of the Nanking debate. By analyzing the Nanking Massacre from these diverse angles, this book makes a useful reference source. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers or faculty. G. Zheng Angelo State University
