"Göran Sommardal respond Bosse Lindquist about Jan Myrdal"
"This is a kulturartikel which is a part of Aftonbladet's opinionsjournalistik."
"to be someone who claims to be beaten below the belt is Bosse Lindquist surprisingly generous with the mccarthyistiska rundpallarna. Now is said, I have studied rhetorical skills in both Moscow and Beijing."
"But no, I have no sore Myrdal-toes. I have never been a part of jamie's entourage."
"And no, I do not feel the need to explain my relationship to Jan Myrdal's numerous and often principbländade and quasi-historicist positions in politics."
"nVad I, however, still do not understand is how Bosse Lindquist by interpretive quote a few extracts from the preface to the Report from a chinese village may convince himself that he has proven that this is a book in which ”it decreases the slip between the truth and the lie when he writes about chinese farmers”. Was Bosse Lindquist there and then, he is clairvoyant, he has access to contemporary intervjumaterial that contradicts the texts in Myrdal's book?"
"If the merits of the case, the problem is how best to keep the moral inquisition and fix things with ”Books when released through Myrdal nedsolkningar [of the two dead women]”, so I find it hard to connect this with a charitable ideologically turned down correctly."
"was came out in 1963. For many, especially in the u.s. the propaganda was still Chinese = Yellow peril, which, from the summer of 1960, in an equal degree were the vibes in the Soviet union in and with the open policy differences. China was held (by the U.S.) outside the UN, where the Republic of China, that is to say, Chiang Kai-shek regime on Taiwan, took a permanent seat in the Security council."
"When Myrdal and Gun Kessles book came out, and soon translated into the major world languages, it was one of the few sympathetic human set introductions to chinese reality (Sven and Cecilia lindqvist's China from the inside same year, was another). When the Report from a chinese village, published in French, called sinologist Jacques Garnet the for the best he read about the communist China. Själve Claude Lévi-Strauss praised its ability to connect anthropology and history."
"With the help of short quotes from the preface to the book find themselves Bosse Lindqvist able to provide evidence of an implicit assumption that He in collusion with Norstedts förlag life through have speculated in the political lies and the moral nedsolkandet of the dead women."
"nLyckligtvis there are still people with critical reading skills in the keep, Hynek Pallas and Stig Larsson (Expressen, 29 april, 1 may). And god be praised that there are still publishers who do not have förläst on Savonarola. Our time has enough political goddagspiltar."
"We need to take us less, not more water over the head."
