Críticas:


"A fine, thoroughly documented full-dress historical study of this genocidal campaign. Conquest grabs his reader at the start."--National Review


"Vital to understanding 'Stalin's revolution.'"--Patrick J. Rollins, Old Dominion University


"The Harvest of Sorrow is not just a heroic work of scholarship, but an embarrassment to Mikhail Gorbachev and an antidote to wishful thinking about the Soviet Union."*


"Essential reading for those who wish to understand the nature of the Soviet system...likely to become a classic."The Wall Street Journal


"The Harvest of Sorrow is 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."--The Wall Street Journal


"The most comprehensive history of the Soviet agricultural crisis....Also the most vivid portrayal of one of the great crimes against humanity of the twentieth century."--American Historical Review


"The first major scholarly book on the horrors [of Soviet collectivization]....Conquest has succeeded in restoring [the peasants'] human faces."--Time


"A very good book of its kind."--T.E. Smuck, University of Hawaii


"A superb book on a fascinating topic."--Bruce F. Adams, University of Louisville


"A superb book on one of the most important questions in Soviet history."--Herbert Ellison, University of Washington

"[A] superb work of history."--Newsweek


"Meticulously researched...Robert Conquest presents a chilling account of Stalin's regime cold bloodedly killing twenty million of its own subjects."--The Washington Post Book World


"Powerful and well-documented."--The New Republic


"An excellent book....It is an eye-opener about a period of Soviet history that has been systematically falsified and ignored too often."--Steven M. Miner, Ohio University


"A carefully researched and superbly written study. It deals with a period, and a set of problems, that rank among the most important (and most neglected) of Soviet historical studies."--Los Angeles Times Book Review


"A comprehensive record of what may stand as the crime of the century."--The Chicago Tribune


"Brilliant and brutal. Should be required reading for all of Gorbachev's apologists."--John C.K. Daly, Kansas State University

Reseña del editor:

The Harvest of Sorrow is the first full history of one of the most horrendous human tragedies of the 20th century. Between 1929 and 1932 the Soviet Communist Party struck a double blow at the Russian peasantry: dekulakization, the dispossession and deportation of millions of peasant families, and collectivization, the abolition of private ownership of land and the concentration of the remaining peasants in party-controlled "collective" farms. This was followed in 1932-33 by a "terror-famine," inflicted by the State on the collectivized peasants of the Ukraine and certain other areas by setting impossibly high grain quotas, removing every other source of food, and preventing help from outside--even from other areas of the Soviet Union--from reaching the starving populace. The death toll resulting from the actions described in this book was an estimated 14.5 million--more than the total number of deaths for all countries in World War I.

Ambitious, meticulously researched, and lucidly written, The Harvest of Sorrow is a deeply moving testament to those who died, and will register in the Western consciousness a sense of the dark side of this century's history.
