Reviews

"Marks a rare moment of maturity for Central Asian studies, combining deep archival research with earlier findings by historians...to paint a harrowing picture." --Alexander Morrison, The Times Literary Supplement
"Kindler's book sheds important light on the way Stalinism functioned practically at both high and humble levels and hints at important parallels between events in Kazakhstan and elsewhere in the Soviet Union during collectivization. It represents an important perspective and a major contribution to our understanding of the famine." --Ian W. Campbell, Russian Review

"Kindler [has] made significant, likely definitive, contributions to our understanding of the Kazakh famine." --Revolutionary Russia

Praise for the German edition:

"An outstanding contribution to the literature on the Kazakh famine. It is based on prolific research in dozens of archives and on an excellent grasp of recent Kazakh, Russian, and western scholarship." --Slavic Review
