Gareth Jones-A Manchukuo Incident (2001) deals with the private investigation of the strange circumstances surrounding the death of Gareth Jones, a young man with a promising career in investigative journalism. Jones life was cut short by an unknown assassin in Manchuria at the time of the Japanese occupation in 1935. The book was written by Garth Jones' niece, Siriol Colley, who discovered and sifter through her uncle's papers in the family archives in Wales in the early 1990s. Who was Gareth Jones? An intrepid Welshman who personally witnessed and described what the scholar Robert Conquest has called the "Harvest of Sorrow" in a 1986 book - the genocide of Ukrainians by Soviet Holodomor, the deliberate "mass killing by hunger" orchestrated by Stalin and the Russian occupiers during 1932 and 1933, as to impose communism and effect the subjugation of the Ukraine. The echoes of imperialism and brutal subjugation of their neighbors by the Russians reverberate through the ages! Young Gareth Jones went against Stalin's foremost Western apologist, Walter Duranty, a New York Times correspondent who earned a Pulitzer Prize in part for protecting Stalin's reputation and covering up Soviet atrocities from the West. Duranty falsely called Jones' reporting of the famine as "malignant propaganda," and dismissed Soviet hard times with his famous aphorism that to make omelets one must brake eggs. The omelets never materialized in the Worker's Paradise of Soviet totalitarianism, but Duranty gained fame and fortune for his journalistic mendacity. Shamefully, Duranty's Prize has not been rescinded by the New York Times, but thanks to Siriol Colley the truth is coming to light about his more honest and truthful opponent - Gareth Jones. Her subsequent book is More Than a Grain of Truth (2005), a complete biography of her uncle. Lucky those who can find a copy of these self-published and rare books!
