Blood For Dignity: The Story Of The First Integrated Combat Unit In The U.S. Army. “Chronicle of a Blood Merchant takes us straight to the heartland of China—the towns, streets, courtyards, kitchens, and bedrooms where ordinary Chinese live. They may not be great warriors or politician s, but their courageous efforts in living a life with hope and dignity make them true heroes. This book is a gem.”—Author: Yu Hua.

    Dignity gives a face to the back row that suffers as statistics that the more fortunate can turn their eyes from, because numbers aren’t flesh and blood with pockmarked faces and track-marked. Books shelved as human-dignity: Another Turn of the Crank by Wendell Berry, A Cave in the Clouds: A Young Woman's Escape from Isis by Badeeah Hassan Ahme.
