  • The Rape of Nanking

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Iris Chang
    • Narrated By Anna Fields

    In December 1937, in the capital of China, one of the most brutal massacres in the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred. The Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking and within weeks not only looted and burned the defenseless city but systematically raped, tortured and murdered more than 300,000 Chinese civilians. Amazingly, the story of this atrocity- one of the worst in world history- continues to be denied by the Japanese government.

    Douglas says: "Powerful"
    "good reminder but not balanced"

    I downloaded this audio book because I wanted to know what my grandfathers and grandmothers did during the WW.The author described the wartime atrocities so vividly and acurately and I'm sure this is what happened then.However,when I finished reading this book ,I got the feeling that this author is a bit biased and unfair.First of all,Japanese Prime Minister has apologized to the chinese over and over again(as he did in 2005,maybe you saw it on CNN) and secondly Japan sends $1bil annually not as reparation but as ODA.(Which contradicts this authors accuasation that Japan hasn't sent money to China)And the chinese government spends that amount of money reinforcing its military as you know.As for the text book,I was strongly appalled that the author didn't mention that only 0.1% of the students in Japan use the text book which whitewashed our war time atrocities,published by "atarashii kyokasowo tsukurukai"and chinese text book is more whitewashed and censored by chinese govenment.
    I feel sorry for chinese victims and I want to apologize on behalf of my grandfather(who passed away 50 years ago) for the crimes commited by Japanese troops 70 years ago.

  • My Turn at the Bully Pulpit

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Greta Van Susteren
    • Narrated By Greta Van Susteren

    Welcome to the bully pulpit where opinions fly but common sense rules. Here's where you'll find straight talk about the most pressing issues of the day, all delivered in the trademark commonsense style of one of America's most popular and admired television news anchors. Always resisting the political label that attempts to place people in one ideological camp or another, Greta Van Susteren speaks from the mind and the heart, not as a liberal or a conservative, but as a sensible citizen.

    TomD says: "Enlightening"

    after listening to this audio book i realized why bill o'reilly mentioned her name lots of times on his program.what she says is to the point and convincing.fair and balanced is the word i would choose to describe her.
