Product description

Review

""The Slaughter is gripping, horrifying, infuriating--and utterly compelling. . . read this book." - William Kristol, editor, Weekly Standard "Pity anyone who enters China's penal system...according to investigator Ethan Gutmann, whose expose rests on interviews with top police officials, doctors who have killed captives on the operating table, and torture survivors..." - South China Morning Post "Veteran China analyst Ethan Gutmann...reveals a shocking story." - The Leonard Lopate Show, WNYC "...a vital step toward exposing a state-sanctioned practice." -Publishers Weekly "...a wake up call." - The Current, CBCRadio "He does the work of a thousand journalists...This book should shake us all." -Jay Nordlinger, National Review "The book reads almost as a fiction novel...a macabre murder mystery. ...In fact, the story is so appalling and the writing so compelling that the reader would much rather believe that it actually is fiction." - International Affairs Review "...too indisputable to ignore." - New York Post "...a meticulously-researched record of repression, torture, and murder by the Chinese Communist Party..." - David Kilgour, Former Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) "A shocking account filled with detailed personal research, carefully weighed, of a horrifying and gruesome aspect of China's economic boom." -Jasper Becker, author of Hungry Ghosts: Mao's Secret Famine "...a truly important book" -New York Journal of Books "Some chapters make for gruesome reading. All shout out the need for more international attention, investigation, and accountability." -Congressman Chris Smith, co-chair, Congressional-Executive Commission on China "If the international community hasn't been moved to action yet, Gutmann's book just might do the trick." -Before It's News "Think hard, and consider "The Slaughter" by Ethan Gutmann. Warning: it's not for the faint of heart." - The Bookworm "...a social horror story of a medical community involved in the impossible. Any collection interested in Chinese culture, medicine and political issues will find this an important, key read." - Midwest Book Review "...a shocking, but moving account of terrible crimes against humanity..." -China Uncensored "This book will be banned in China. And that is a tragedy." --Chen Guangcheng, Chinese civil rights activist "
