On December 13, 1937 the Japanese Imperial Army began a six-week campaign of torture against the Chinese capital of Nanking. Indiscriminate killing of men, women, and children left 350,000 Chinese dead. Women of all ages, including young girls, were repeatedly raped by Japanese soldiers. Over 80,000 women were forced to submit to this violent and dehumanizing act. With more than 400 never-before-seen photographs, many taken by Japanese soldiers themselves, The Rape of Nanking exposes every dramatic moment of this inhuman massacre.

Until now, this horrific event has been little more than a historical footnote in the West. In fact, little has been written in the last half-century about the Japanese occupation of China, during which an estimated 30 million Chinese were killed. The Rape of Nanking brings you the victims, the aggressors, and the survivors -- through the eyes of a camera and the words of a journalist.
-- Hundreds of never-before-seen photographs
-- Companion book to internationally touring exhibition
-- Only book to reveal horrors of Japanese occupation of China -- strong international reaction anticipated
