Review | New Book Available: Minghui Report: The 20-Year Persecution of Falun Gong in China
“For those concerned about the misuse of Chinese power around the world, this book is an essential source of information. It offers over 430 pages of the most exhaustive documentation of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China, and should be in every library and parliamentary office in Australia,” recommended Westmore.
Above was from the book review that Peter Westmore, former president of the National Civic Council (NCC) in Australia, wrote in the August 8, 2020 issue of News Weekly. He reviewed The 20-Year Persecution of Falun Gong in China from the Minghui Publishing Center and highly recommended it to libraries as well as government officials.
MBR Reviewer Michael J. Carson wrote, “Impressively informative, exceptionally well organized and presented, 'Minghui Report: The 20-Year Persecution of Falun Gong in China' is a unique, extraordinary, and comprehensive study that is especially and unreservedly recommended for personal, community, college, and university library Falun Gong collections and supplemental studies reading lists.”
The following article was first published on November 21, 2019.
The new English book Minghui Report: The 20-Year Persecution of Falun Gong in China will soon be published and is now available for pre-order.
This milestone report is based entirely on firsthand information collected by Minghui.org from China and around the world. The book gives readers a comprehensive, genuine experience of the past twenty years of persecution faced by Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China and the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) extension of the persecution overseas through its intimidation of leaders and businesses in other countries. The book’s documentation of the modern battle between good and evil not only vividly illustrates the brutality of the persecution in China and abroad, but also explains the roles of key perpetrators and CCP agencies (including the 610 Office) responsible for launching and pushing forward the persecution.
The book also clears up many misconceptions held by China experts and scholars who have been misled by the CCP’s narrative. It covers three basic topics about the persecution (the April 2 appeal, the Tiananmen self-immolation hoax, and “1,400 deaths”), as well as Falun Gong practitioners’ worldwide efforts to counter the persecution, charts of persecution statistics, and basic information about Falun Gong. The book is suitable for readers who wish to understand Falun Gong systematically and for influential people who want to gain a deeper understanding of Falun Gong, including lawyers, the human rights community, business leaders, scholars, and politicians. Many topics covered in the book are indispensable to anyone with political, business, or personal ties to China.
The book totals 437 pages, including 26 pages of color photos and graphs. Measuring 8.25 inches wide and 11.75 inches tall, the book is available in hardcover with high-quality printing and an elegant appearance.
