Between 1929 and 1932 the Soviet Communist Party struck a double blow at the peasantry of the USSR: dekulakisation, the dispossession and deportation of millions of peasant families; and collectivisation, the effective abolition of private property in land and the concentration of the remaining peasantry in 'collective' farms under Party control. There followed a 'terror-famine', inflicted on the collectivised peasants of the Ukraine and certain other regions by the state, which set impossibly high quotas, removed every other source of food, and prevented outside help - even from other areas of the USSR - from reaching the starving millions. More deaths resulted from the actions described in this book that the total number of deaths from all the countries in the First World War. Epic in scope and rich in detail, The Harvest of Sorrow tells the moving story of a disaster that was, in human terms, one of the worst in living memory.

Review:

"It is to Robert Conquest's undying credit that he has at last brought this incredible story into the light of day" * Spectator * "Massive and devastating... The Harvest of Sorrow reveals the truth about the dreadful years as fully and unflinchingly as Mr Conquest's The Great Terror presented it about Stalin's later crimes" * The Times * "Majestic... The detachment of Conquest's telling adds to the story's horror and its effectiveness" * Sunday Times * "A vitally important task... painstaking and scholarly... the first thoroughgoing account of the tragedy... heartrending" * Daily Telegraph * "Essential reading for those who wish to understand the nature of the Soviet system, and like Mr Conquest's earlier account of Stalin's purges of the 1930s, The Great Terror, it is likely to become a classic" * Wall Street Journal *
