    Heartbreaking, necessary reading. I recommend pairing this with David Moon’s The Plough that Broke the Steppes: Agriculture and Environment on Russia's Grasslands, 1700–1914 for an examination of tsarist colonial settlement to enable drawing of continuities with Soviet Kazakh policy. Despite the complexity of genocide studies, Cameron thoughtfully analyses the historiography of the Kazakh famine in relation to its overshadowing by the better-known and studied Ukrainian famine. Her finest achieve Heartbreaking, necessary reading.

Her finest achievement, however, is centering the tragedy that the Kazakh people suffered.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Very powerful book. A product of an extensive 'on the ground' research is heart breaking, tragic and damning to read. Apart from making a great contribution to a history of Kazakhs and people of former Soviet Union, the book is a warning to modern Kazakhs of what total disregard for people can do, whether by Bolsheviks in Moscow or people with Boleshevik methods closer to home...

    Relatively academic so it's not like a rip-roaring read but it is an English-language book about a topic that is mostly unknown in the English-speaking world. The most interesting things to me were some of the comparisons between western understanding of the Ukrainian famine vs. the Kazakh famine.
