Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Between 1929 and 1932 the Soviet Communist Party struck a double blow at the peasantry of the USSR: dekulakisation, the dispossession and deportation of millions of peasant families; and collectivisation, the effective abolition of private property in land and the concentration of the remaining peasantry in 'collective' farms under Party control.

There followed a 'terror-famine', inflicted on the collectivised peasants of the Ukraine and certain other regions by the state, which set impossibly high quotas, removed every other source of food, and prevented outside help - even from other areas of the USSR - from reaching the starving millions. More deaths resulted from the actions described in this book that the total number of deaths from all the countries in the First World War.

Epic in scope and rich in detail, The Harvest of Sorrow tells the moving story of a disaster that was, in human terms, one of the worst in living memory.

Par Anthony Murphy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a book which has to be read. It is the story of how the Communist Party of Russia led by a gang which called itself the Central Committee of the Party, and to which all Communists the world over, owed their allegience to brought about mass starvation in their vain efforts to industrialise, and in their even vainer efforts to construct a Marxist Utopia.Stalin the all knowing leader with his subordinates in tow, decided that the Ukraine in particular should be subject to Collectivisation.Activists were sent into thriving villages to implement this policy.They held 'voluntary' meetings which excluded the worst objectors who were villified as 'Kulaks'. As for the rest they were not allowed to leave these meetings, some of which dragged on interminably, until all opposition was literally exhausted.The grain which the peasants had produced was forcibly taken (confiscated) with not even enough being left to feed those who had worked the fields.Even the seed corn was taken and the consequence of this was a famine in what had been the 'breadbasket' of the USSR.The death toll was in the millions.Mothers told their children to eat them if they died - cannibalism -if not commonplace, was a regular feature of this period.Journalists who were there were not allowed into these areas unless the Soviet Government trusted them.Even with these resrictions some reports came back to the West but were not believed at the time.The Russians themseves are now beginning to learn the truth of his dreadful crime against humanity.The apologists still deny the truth of this episode even today or minimise its impact.This is a hard read for anyone with a shred of humanity in their hearts but it is almost mandatory if we are to do justice to its victims.A.Murphy.B.Sc(Econ);Postgraduate Psychology.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heart wrenchingly accurate. 18 avril 2012

I can only say that this book is very well researched and very sad - if not totally frightening. A definite recommended reading by everyone (yes everyone)
if for no other reason than to see what did happen and what can happen in a country if the people let down their guard.

This was an excellent description of a little-known incident in world history. However, reading about the callous and casual treatment of peasants by the Stalinist government tended to be a bit emotionally overwhelming. We are aware of the Armenian genocide and
the Holocaust but the Ukrainian genocide has been overshadowed by the attempt of the western powers to return to normalcy after WWII.
