Product Description

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)

Format: Paperback
The mass murder of some 4-7,000,000 Ukranians between 1929-1932 has been descrbed in another book as "the largest, single most effetive killing of human beings in history."

Robert Conquest has researched a topic that should be more widely taught. That of Communist authorities inflicting famine on a territory they were having difficulty controlling. The shocking thing about this criminal act of genocide is that there is almost no interest in it outside of Ukraine. A crime of this magnitude should be investigated and the world made aware of the tragic events.

I found this book very interesting and informative. It shows that Stalin intentionally created the artifical famine to annihilate the Ukrainians and anyone who opposed him. The Western World was deceived in believing that Stalin was doing wonders while he was killed millions of people to fulfill his ulterior motives. He is worse than an animal. His collectivization plan was a disaster and he blamed the kulaks and the peasants for its failure. He ensured that his opposition was non existent at what ever cost.

Highly acclaimed, The Harvest of Sorrow: Soviet Collectivization and the Terror-Famine is a British historian's detailed, documented account of the horrific events in Soviet Ukraine in 1929-1932 during Stalin's reign wherein millions perished by means of man-made starvation.

Awards and honors of British historian Robert Conquest include: the Jefferson Lectureship, the highest honor the federal government bestows for achievement in the humanities (1993); the Alexis de Tocqueville Award (1992); the Richard Weaver Award for Scholarly Letters (1999); the Fondazione Liberal Career Award (2004); the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2005); and the Ukraine Presidential Medal of Honor (2006). The Ukraine Presidential Medal of Yaroslav Mudryi, named for the Kyivan prince known as a lawgiver and patron of the church and the arts (early 1000s), was given in recognition of Dr. Conquest's path-breaking scholarship on the Ukrainian famine 1932-1933 in Harvest of Sorrow (1986). The Medal is the highest honor bestowed by Ukraine.

By 2006, Dr. Conquest had authored twenty-one books on Soviet history, politics, and international affairs, including the classic, The Great Terror, which has been translated into twenty languages, and the acclaimed Harvest of Sorrow (Oxford University Press, 1986). His field of expertise is Russian and world politics and history. His many professional affiliations include former research associate of Harvard University's Ukrainian Research Institute. This is but a brief outline of Robert Conquest's curriculum vitae; that his credentials are distinguished, formidable, and impressive goes without saying.
