Finding the Facts About Mao’s Victims


With all the interest in Frank Dikötter's new book on China's Great Famine of 1958-1961, I thought it would be interesting to talk to Yang Jisheng, whose book "Tombstone" is the more authoritative book to come out on famine--and in many ways goes into more depth than Dikötter's. The Q&A can be found on the NYRB blog, accessible here.
