UNSW Library. Open to the public ; N Book English Show 0 more libraries The famine was as bad as it was because of a whole slew of phenomena that corresponded with the bad policy. Policy limiting the extent of fallow land and mandated overcultivation, for example, severely reduced flexibility of planting times which became disastrous when combined with odd weather conditions. The bungling of grain collections by the state is explored in excruciating, but gripping, detal.
Wheatcroft and Davies frequently recount series of communication between officials, or proposed policy documents as they circulate through the heirarchy, describing the conditions and proposing oslutions, and the response of the higher ups. The top leadership comes off looking somewhat bad on net, altohugh there are a number of examples of people like Stalin making the right decision in the face of incompetent subordinates. The caricature of Stalin as tyrant who would allow no criticism is thoroughly demolished.grupoavigase.com/includes/169/1230-chicas-bilbao.php
The Years of Hunger: Soviet Agriculture, 1931-1933
One problem is their criticism of Mark Tauger's arguments about the role of plant disease that was spreading throughout the area somewhat independent of state policy. Tauger correctly presents this as a small but significant cause, whereas Wheatcroft and Davies would have it be insignificant. However, their argument agianst Tauger is completely incoherent. This should be obvious when one reads it, but you can also find Tauger's review of this book on the Economic History website. Although there are only a few pages dedicated to refuting alternative explanations of the famine, this book serves to utterly destroy right wing the famine was deliberate and left wing it was caused by reactionary saboteurs myths about the famine.
The Industrialisation of Soviet Russia Volume 5: The Years of Hunger
There is no evidence of an intentional famine at all, and the book recounts the serious attempts of the state to help mitigate and eliminate the famine. The authors even quote a personal correspondence with Robert Conquest in which he concedes contrary to what he got famous for saying for decades that the famine wasn't intentional. While only a few Ukrainian nationalist cranks hold this view, the book clearly destroys the idea of a famine concentrated only or overwhelmingly in the Ukraine.
They show that 5. While they don't explicitly mention them, this book refutes the favorite claims of certain Stalinists about the famine. To give one example, Douglas Tottle has tried to show the extent of sabotage by giving a few examples of saboteurs killing livestock and attributing the entire decline to sabotage. The chapter in this book on livestock, however, shows that the livestock starved in the famine itself! They also show how the condition they were kept in in state and collective farms contributed to the deaths of livestock.
