Synopsis: TOMBSTONE: THE UNTOLD STORY OF MAO'S GREAT FAMINE

Yang Jisheng's Tombstone is the book that broke the silence on of one of history's most terrible crimes. More people died in Mao's Great Famine than in the entire First World War, yet this story has remained largely untold, until now. Still banned in China, Tombstone draws on the author's privileged access to official and unofficial sources to uncover the full human cost of the tragedy, and create an unprecedented work of historical reckoning. "A book of great importance". (Jung Chang, author of Wild Swans). "The first proper history of China's great famine...So thorough is his documentation that some are already calling Yang "China's Solzhenitsyn"". (Anne Applebaum, author of Gulag: A History).
