Abstract ― The Nanking Hoax: A Historian Analyzes the Events of 1937
Through his thorough research on Nanking incident for nearly 30 years, he saw a parade of characters marching through history: those who made the accusations, those who publicized them, those who used them to their advantage, those who were manipulated by them — Chinese, Americans, Japanese. So many people have participated in this drama in so many ways. Why were such accusations made? How were they disseminated throughout the world? Why were they given credence at the Tokyo Trials? How did the Japanese react to them? When did the Republic of China first make those allegations? This book answers those questions.
