When Peter Hessler went to China in the late 1990s, he expected to spend a couple of peaceful years teaching English in the town of Fuling on the Yangtze River. But what he experienced - the natural beauty, cultural tension, and complex process of understanding that takes place when one is thrust into a radically different society - surpassed anything he could have imagined. Hessler observes firsthand how major events such as the death of Deng Xiaoping, the return of Hong Kong to the mainland, and the controversial consturction of the Three Gorges Dam have affected even the people of a remote town like Fuling. Poignant, thoughtful and utterly compelling, River Town is an unforgettable portrait of a place caught mid-river in time, much like China itself - a country seeking to understand both what it was and what it will one day become.

In a story that spans one-fourth of America's history, Ken Peery reveals what can be accomplished when a person learns to "Delight yourself in the Lord." (Ps. 37:4) From the story of how his ancestors came to America, to small town life in the Midwest, to Naval service during World War II, to a distinguished career in law and Christian mediation, to political involvement, to a miraculous medical recovery, Ken's story is not only all-American, it is a compelling story of the benefits of "delighting in the Lord." What is a "methobapterian?" What is Justice? How do you define it? Can it be defined? What would you do if you and your mate were seriously sunburned on your honeymoon? Re-live trips through the Gorges of the upper Yangtze River. Ken Peery was born in 1925 and raised and nurtured in Emporia, Kansas. After service in the US Navy in WWII, Ken practiced law in Emporia, did a seven year stint as a lawyer in a government agency in Washington, DC, and, in 1962, re-entered law practice in Concordia, Kansas. In 1982 he "escaped" from law practice to establish Christian conciliation programs in the Kansas City area and later in Bentonville and Rogers, Arkansas. Ken and Doris, his wife, have been married 56 years. They are the parents of two sons, grandparents of six grandchildren and have two great- grandsons. The Peerys live in Topeka, Kansas.

The Nanking Atrocity 1937 1938

First published in 2007, The Nanking Atrocity remains an essential resource for understanding the massacre committed by Japanese soldiers in Nanking, China during the winter of 1937-38. Through a series of deeply considered and empirically rigorous essays, it provides a far more complex and nuanced perspective than that found in works like Iris Chang's bestselling The Rape of Nanking. It systematically reveals the flaws and exaggerations in Chang's book while deflating the self-exculpatory narratives that persist in Japan even today. This second edition includes an extensive new introduction by the editor reflecting on the historiographical developments of the last decade, in advance of the 80th anniversary of the massacre.
