The 36 million in a sense murdered by Mao and the Chinese communist leadership. Here’s my original post which attempted to visualize the number using our Vietnam War memorial as a prop, a post most important for its links to the must-see documentary China: The Mao Years. That post was on the occasion of the English publication of the important book: Tombstone: The Great Chinese Famine by Yang Jisheng.
This week, I notice there is a fine new article on the book by professor Arthur Waldron in The New Criterion . (H/T Powerline)
36 million. It’s a number to remember.
