Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Yang Jisheng is a Chinese journalist and author of Tombstone (Mùb i), a comprehensive account of the Great Chinese Famine during the Great Leap Forward. Yang joined the Communist Party in 1964 and graduated from Tsinghua University in 1966. He promptly joined Xinhua News Agency, where he worked until his retirement in 2001. As of 2008, he was the deputy editor of the journal Yanhuang Chunqiu (Chronicles of History) in Beijing. Yang Jisheng is also listed as a Fellow of China Media Project, a department under Hong Kong University. Beginning in the early 1990s, Yang began interviewing people and collecting records of The Great Famine of 1959-1961, in which his own father had died, eventually accumulating ten million words of records. He published a two-volume 1,100 page account of the period, in which he meticulously cited his sources to prevent the Chinese government from dismissing it. It was widely acclaimed as being the definitive account of the Great Famine.

“Hotta illuminates the extraordinary ideological and military predicament in which Japan found itself  in the months before the attack on Pearl Harbor…[She] brings to life the key figures of a deeply divided Japanese leadership…[and] scrupulously details [their] negotiations and squabbles…against a backdrop of dauntingly complex domestic and international maneuverings.”             — The New Yorker “Outstanding...In lucid prose, Hotta...persuasively sketches the very distinct personalities shaping the decisions that drove Japan toward war….She makes it clear that there are two versions of the Asia-Pacific War in China and Japan that hardly meet at all…[and] concludes that after 1945, Japan’s actual ‘past, with its improbable story of how the war came to pass, became another country.’ It is a country that policymakers in Tokyo, Beijing, and Washington should seek to understand, not least through this humane and fair-minded book.”             —Rana Mitter, The New York Review of Books 'Chilling…Constitutes a warning of the literally earth-shattering dangers that can emerge when the political system of a powerful nation fails to work.'     —The New York Times Book Review “Hotta’s groundbreaking work is both a fascinating history and a cautionary tale for those who wield power today.”             — The Dallas Morning News “[Hotta’s] account is a warning to any country that would talk itself into a foolish war.”             — The Seattle Times “In this focused, informed and persuasive book…Hotta effortlessly returns us to the moment just before the dice were so disastrously rolled. From a perspective little known to Americans, a masterful account of how and why World War II began.”             — Kirkus Reviews   “A fascinating read for anyone interested in Japan’s involvement in World War II…While scholarly and thoroughly researched, it’s also a highly enjoyable read…A real page turner.”             — Library Journal “In this fast-moving, persuasive account of Japan's road to Pearl Harbor, Eri Hotta describes the pathetic leadership of a country who argue among themselves endlessly when the crisis across the Pacific requires decisive action to preserve the peace. It is a story of self-delusion, irresponsibility, and ignorance from which Japan is not entirely free even today.”     —Akira Iriye, author of Pearl Harbor and the Coming of the Pacific War “This ambitious, groundbreaking history builds new layers atop a story that we thought we knew.”     — Everyday eBook “Finely nuanced…[Hotta]  forcefully reframes how we should consider the Japanese with respect to their positions as emerging world powers in [an]…era of international turmoil.              — Asian American Literature Fans “Riveting…This important book should be in every major library. It will interest anyone attempting to make sense of Pearl Harbor, the Pacific War, or bureaucratic dysfunction and its possibly tragic consequences.”             —Choice
