Title: Annihilation Zones: Far East Atrocities of the 20th Century
Description: London, Creation Books. 2002, First Edition. (ISBN: 1840680652) Paperback, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Cover Creased. Examines a shocking Far Eastern tradition of brutal murder and atrocity that persists to this day. Illustrated by rare and harrowing photographs, Annihilation Zones is a graphic, revelatory document demonstrating how the primal biological imperatives of homicide and xenophobia remain inextricably entwined in the Far Eastern psyche, ever poised to surface at the flimsiest of ideological prompts. The book includes studies on the following: Japan: Lust for Death: The 20th Century has witnessed many Japanese atrocities, including activities in pre-war Manchuria, notably the Nanking massacre and Unit 731 medical experiment camp; Japanese wartime cruelty, cannibalism, beheadings and mass disembowelments; and the dark secrets of contemporary Japan, where the irrepressible instinct for annihilation takes the form of schoolboy decapitations, mass suicides, lust-murder and random lethal-gas attacks. Pol Pot: Back to Zero: From 1975 to 1979, Pol Pot, Cambodia's self-styled "Citizen Number One," instituted the world's greatest fulfilment of a state founded on sexual torture, mass butchery and genocide since the era of the Roman Emperors. Under the guise of revolutionary communism, he and his private army, the Khmer Rouge, instigated Operation Year Zero - the mass violation and decapitation of millions of Cambodian intellectuals, office workers and peasants, staged in great open-air killing fields. Stalin: Red Holocaust: Josef Stalin, the Soviet dictator, instigated a complex of USSR sub-zero death camps at Kolyma on the isolated Far Eastern Pacific coast, where twelve million Soviet citizens were gratuitously and systematically massacred on his perverse whim, leaving mountains of human ashes. Nasty. Good.
