its very common for a government to try to cover up its negative points in history to its youth. The US history books say very little about the attitude of the people towards the internment camps, as stated before. The college books probably cover that material. Its a form of propaganda; its to make sure the kids grow up patriotic. Manzanar would not help that cause. To some Russians, Stalin is a non-person; he never existed.

Here are some of the things that are missing..

The 1989 crackdown on democracy demonstrations, when Chinese troops killed hundreds and possibly thousands of unarmed protesters.


The estimated 30 million Chinese who starved to death during the 1958-61 "Great Leap Forward," revolutionary leader Mao Zedong's attempt to speed up China's farm and factory output through mass collectivization.

Textbooks gloss over ally North Korea's invasion of South Korea at the start of the 1950-53 Korean War, a conflict that drew in troops from the United States and other countries on the side of the South and China's army in support of the North.

The texts say only that "civil war broke out," without mentioning how it started. America is portrayed as an invader that forced Beijing to intervene by threatening Chinese territory.

There is more...

U just judge a single thing by it's surface and u think u are really wide opinion about the Backgroun history. U should read more about the Japanese atrocities to the Asia countries in WW II. Do u know not only China were having those torture but so do the societies (especially Chinese) in South East Asia?

1989 Tian' an men incident is a disaster. Yes, but this kind of recent history normally will not be put in to textbooks. Is too new. I can even tell u even in Malaysia, the Malay government oso try to cover up the real reason of the happening of Racial Conflict in 1969. And they try to cover up the effort of local Chinese society to the Malaysian economic developement.

Believe me, even USA history textbooks has coverup about how the treat other people. Even the CIA now always close-one-eye about some politics issues nowadays, as long as it benefits USA itself.

Korean war is a sad story. It is definately not China that provoke North Korea to launch the attack. Many Chinese in China, also to many of the other people in other places, know that North Korea strated the invasion. And then American went in, before the coming of USA, China did not involve in the incident. And why did China involve? the Answer is simple -- To protect own land from being spied and incluenced by USA.

U want to know what did the USA soldiers did in Korea and Japan nowadays? The soldiers always causing trouble to the local citizens, and the Government cannot do anything to those soldiers because the have America government to support them behind. I ahve a Korean friend who live in the student hostel and he told me this, do American know about those soldiers things?

Indian and Vietnam invasion is well explained. Indian and Vietnam were having territorial conflict with China at that time. I do not know who started provocation, but China was the invade first. And u should take more notice about the China soldiers' treatment to those hostages from Indian and Vietnamese after the invasion, they treat them well, they did not kill them, and they repair the military eqiupment for them, and they sent them back home in peace. U want to know how Japanese soldier treat the hostages? go check urself and I lazy to explain to u.

Japanese killed more than 30 Millions ppl in super brutal and cruelway. In this it involve rape, poison testing, massacre, torture, scientific experiment for biochemical weapon. Civil destruction causes 600 Billion US dollers to China ONLY.

enuff, u r just ignorant.

The enormity of the lie involved in Japan's military attrocities is probably greater than anything that China has not been willing to admit to. I have yet to hear any number consistently for the overall number of Chinese that were killed. In the neighborhood of 20 million. While the Cultural Revolution and Great Leap forward probably outdo that total numerically, China does not insistently deny that these two projects of Mao Zedong's needlessly killed a lot of people. The Chinese government isn't denying that at all.

The Rape of Nanking and the organized sexual enslavement of over 200,000 women (Comfort Women) are a couple exampes of things that the Japanese Government and history books are saying never actually happened. They are extremely well documented events and both directly ordered and organized by the Japanese government and military at the highest levels.

In the case of the Japanese Internment Camps during WW2, the USA may feel ashamed of it and they may not bother mentioning it in a History book. But every single copentent history teacher I ever had brought it up anyways. The fact is, if an American knows history reasonably well, they know for a fact that those Camps existed. They know for a fact many of the shameful details about the US treatment of Native Americans. In fact, I would say that American History focusses heavily on mistreatment of Native Americans. American children are not told that other nations and peoples are lying to them and making up false stories. Japan has been doing exactly that though. That is very wrong.

Even though the Cultural Revolution and the Great Leap Forward was an accident, I still think China should include them in their textbooks so people 50 or 100 years will know about it.
