'There can be little question that this study will supersede other accounts of the famine. It is also important as a unique addition to the 13 other volumes by Davies (with co-authors) and four others by Wheatcroft (and co-authors)...Powerfully written, the book, even more than others in the series, is hard to put down.'- Carol Leonard, Europe-Asia Studies'...the book will stand for a long time as a definitive scholarly study in English of the catastrophic famine in the aftermath of the collectivisation of agriculture in the Soviet Union.'- David Moon, English Historical Review'R. W. Davies and Stephen Wheatcroft have produced the definitive work on Soviet agriculture in the key period 1931-1933.'- Paul Gregory, Journal of Modern History'This, the fifth volume in Palgrave's impressive series, The Industrialisation of Soviet Russia, tackles one of the greatest disasters in the Communists' attempts to establish their socialist Utopia based on a command economy.'- Contemporary Review
