The Slaughter (Book) by Ethan Gutmann


"The Slaughter" By investigative journalist, Ethan Gutmann.

The inside story of China's state-sanctioned organ harvesting of political and religious dissidents.

Murder is alive and well. That is the start conclusion of this comprehensive investigation into the Chinese state's secret program to eliminate political dissidents while profiting from the sale of their organs - in many cases, to Western recipients. Base on interviews with top-ranking police officials, Chinese doctors who have killed prisoners on the operating table, and prisoners of conscience who survived, veteran China analyst Ethan Gutmann has produced a riveting insider's account - culminating in a death toll that will shock the world.

Why would the Chinese leadership encourage such a dangerous perversion of their medical system? To solve the puzzle, Gutmann journeyed deep into the dissident archipelago of Falun Gong, Tibetans, Uyghurs, and House Christians, uncovering an ageless drama of resistance, eliciting confessions of deep betrayal and moments of ecstatic redemption.

In an age of compassion fatigue, Gutmann relies on one simple truth: those who have made it back from the gates of hell have stories to tell. And no matter what baggage readers may bring along, their preconceptions of China will not survive the trip.
