✏What Remains Book Summary : The Taiping Rebellion was one of the costliest civil wars in human history. Many millions of people lost their lives. Yet while the Rebellion has been intensely studied by scholars in China and elsewhere, we still know little of how individuals coped with these cataclysmic events. Drawing upon a rich array of primary sources, What Remains explores the issues that preoccupied Chinese and Western survivors. Individuals, families, and communities grappled with fundamental questions of loyalty and loss as they struggled to rebuild shattered cities, bury the dead, and make sense of the horrors that they had witnessed. Driven by compelling accounts of raw emotion and deep injury, What Remains opens a window to a world described by survivors themselves. This book transforms our understanding of China's 19th century and recontextualizes suffering and loss in China during the 20th century.

✏What Remains of Israel Book Summary : What Remains of Israel is a story about people. Naphtali Benyamin takes a candid look, beyond the nearly daily headlines of terror, into the lives of Israelis from several walks of life. Through the stories of both Jews and Arabs, the impact of the second intifada and its implications for peace in Israel are described in vivid terms. What Remains of Israel touches on the human aspect of a people besieged by the most evil form of terror. It tells their stores, their courage, but, above all, it tells of their hope and their desire for peace. Naphtali Benyamin explains Israel as few have. He argues Jerusalem's place in Islam, questioning its status in classical Islamic history. He explains how the government of Israel is structured and the social tension among Israel's religious, secular and Arab citizens; he examines the intentions of Hamas and presents an example of its negotiating strategy. His work is a careful analysis to describe what remains of Israel. What he found is enlightening.
