Robert Conquest - The harvest of sorrow
Soviet collectivization and the terror-famine


The Harvest of Sorrow : Soviet Collectivization and the Terror-famine is a book by British historian Robert Conquest, published in 1986. It was written with the assistance of historian James Mace, a junior fellow at the Ukrainian Research Institute, who, following the advice of the director of the Institute, started doing research for the book.

The book deals with the collectivization of agriculture in 1929–31 in Ukraine and elsewhere in the USSR under Stalin's direction, and the 1932–33 famine which resulted. Millions of peasants died due to starvation, deportation to labor camps, and execution. Conquest thesis was characterized as "the famine was deliberately inflicted for ethnic reasons" or that it constituted genocide.
