"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)

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.
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.Read more ›

The author, who wrote many of Thatcher's (worst) speeches, admits that this book is based on hearsay and rumour not on proper research. So his figures are ridiculous exaggerations. Read morePublished on 20 Jan. 2009 by William Podmore
This is undoubtedly an important topic which prior to the publication of this book originally over 20 years ago had been overlooked. Read morePublished on 18 Jan. 2005
