Review Squared: Ian Buruma

China: Reeducation Through Horror by Ian Buruma | The New York Review of Books. (Paywalled) Ian’s superb review of Frank Dikötter’s remarkable book “The Tragedy of Liberation: A History of the Chinese Revolution, 1945-1957.” Ian proves my growing conviction that sometimes the reviews are as worthy as the great books they parse.
