Robert Conquest's The Harvest of Sorrow helped to reveal to the
West the true and staggering human cost of the Soviet regime in its
deliberate starvation of millions of peasants and remains one of
the most important works of Soviet history ever written. More
deaths resulted from the actions described in this book than from
the whole of the First World War. Epic in scope and rich in detail,
The Harvest of Sorrow describes how millions of peasants in the
USSR were dispossessed and deported as a result of the abolition of
private property, and how millions in the newly established
`collective' farms of the Ukraine and other regions were then
deliberately starved to death through impossibly high quotas, the
removal of all other sources of food and their isolation from
outside help. With the publication of this and his earlier book,
The Great Terror, which revealed the truth about Stalin's political
purges, Robert Conquest revealed to the West the staggering human
cost of the Soviet regime.
