Overview

The Nanjing Massacre is known as one of the darkest pages in 20th-century world history. For various reasons, however, this historical tragedy remained relatively unknown to the general public in the West until the 1997 publication of Iris Chang's popular book, The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II. Since then, the topic has drawn more attention. A History of the Nanjing Massacre is the first comprehensive narrative of the massacre written by a group of Chinese scholars from Nanjing. From the fall of the city, to the atrocities themselves, to the international community's efforts to save refugees, and finally to the trials of the war criminals, the book offers a complete story of the massacre from the Chinese, Japanese, and Western perspectives. The book is based on a substantial amount of primary source materials collected by a group of Chinese and foreign scholars led by Professor Zhang Xianwen of Nanjing University from major archives and libraries around the world. This massive effort resulted in the publication of 72 volumes of historical data, the most comprehensive collection on the topic.
