0919642292 Signed and inscribed "For Robert Conquest, with admiration" atop title page, apparently by Luciuk, at Kingston, Ontario in 2008. Conquest [1917-1915] was a renowned author and sovietologist once described by a close adviser to Margaret Thatcher as Britain's greatest living historian. His landmark 1986 treatise 'The Harvest of Sorrow' documented the Ukraine's great terror-famine of 1932-1933. 493 pages. Footnotes, bibliography and index. Fold-out colour map. "The documents reveal that even at the height of the famine the Soviet authorities denied that there was starvation, rejected foreign aid, and exported food, and that senior British officials refused to alert the public and discouraged private relief. This collection thus furnishes evidence about the causes, course and consequences of one of the great politically engineered famines of the twentieth century." - back cover. Unmarked with moderate wear. Binding tight. A sound and special association copy of this important historical record.
