Industrialisation of Soviet Russia by Stephen G. Wheatcroft Industrialisation of Soviet Russia, Hardback (December 2011)

Based on extensive research in formerly secret archives, this volume examines the progress of Soviet industrialisation against the background of the rising threat of aggression from Germany, Japan and Italy, and the consolidation of Stalin's power.

Years of Hunger: Soviet Agriculture, 1931-1933 by Stephen G. Wheatcroft Years of Hunger: Soviet Agriculture, 1931-1933, Paperback (December 2003)

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.
