"A meticulous and moving account of a momentous, tragic yet neglected chapter of modern history [now known as the Holodomor]. Presents for the first time the full story of Stalin's collectivization program and its consequences. Reconstructs the background of the events and carefully details the fate of villages and individuals, the desperate condition of children left homeless, and the various cruelties and agonies of the man-made famine that followed. Seeks a true accounting of the death toll and shows how the West has long been deceived about what really happened." - dust jacket. "Conquest's excellently and professionally written book investigates the most serious crime of Leninist-Stalinist communism: its war against the peasantry of the U.S.S.R., which, before its destruction, constituted 82 percent of the entire population." - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Unmarked with light overall wear. Tight and square. Dust jacket preserved in mylar. This stark testament of one of the greatest crimes in human history is a must for the shelf of any serious sovietologist.
