An examination of the Soviet agricultural crisis of 1931-1933 which culminated in the major famine of 1933. Making extensive use of Russian and Ukrainian central and local archives, the book reaches new conclusions on how far this famine was 'organized' or 'artificial', and compares it with other famines in Russia and elsewhere.
