China was afflicted by a brutal succession of conflicts through much ofthe nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Yet there has never been clearunderstanding of how wartime suffering has defined the nation andshaped its people. In Beyond Suffering, a distinguished groupof Chinese historians draws on often fragmentary accounts of nearlyforgotten incidents to piece together the multiple fronts -social, institutional, and cultural - on which wars havebeen fought, experienced, and remembered. From the BlagoveshchenskMassacre to the trials of the Jiangxi Number One Children's Home,these accounts of war-inflicted suffering bring us closer tounderstanding war and militarism in China.
