From the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Gulag and the National Book Award finalist Iron Curtain, a revelatory history of one of Stalin's greatest crimes—the consequences of which still resonate today In 1929 Stalin launched his policy of agricultural collectivization—in effect a second Russian revolution—which forced millions of peasants off their land and onto collective farms. The result was a catastrophic famine, the most lethal in European history. At least five million people died between 1931 and 1933 in the USSR. But instead of sending relief the Soviet state made use of the catastrophe to rid itself of a political problem. In Red Famine, Anne Applebaum argues that more than three million of those dead were Ukrainians who perished not because they were accidental victims of a bad policy but because the state deliberately set out to kill them. Applebaum proves what has long been suspected: after a series of rebellions unsettled the province, Stalin set out to destroy the Ukrainian peasantry. The state sealed the republic’s borders and seized all available food. Starvation set in rapidly, and people ate anything: grass, tree bark, dogs, corpses. In some cases, they killed one another for food. Devastating and definitive, Red Famine captures the horror of ordinary people struggling to survive extraordinary evil. Today, Russia, the successor to the Soviet Union, has placed Ukrainian independence in its sights once more. Applebaum’s compulsively readable narrative recalls one of the worst crimes of the twentieth century, and shows how it may foreshadow a new threat to the political order in the twenty-first.

Με τα χέρια στις τσέπες, ο Ρέμπους γύρισε για να αντικρίσει τον Κάφερτι. Ήταν γέροι πια, παρόμοια κοψιά, παρόμοια καταγωγή. Εάν κάθονταν μαζί σε μια παμπ, μπορεί κάποιος τυχαίος παρατηρητής να τους περνούσε για φίλους που γνωρίζονταν από το σχολείο. Το παρελθόν τους, όμως, έλεγε μια διαφορετική ιστορία. Η αποστρατεία δεν ταιριάζει στον Τζον Ρέμπους. Δεν είναι φτιαγμένος για χόμπι και διακοπές. Η δουλειά του αστυνομικού κυλάει στις φλέβες του. Έτσι, όταν η επιθεωρήτρια Σιβόν Κλαρκ ζητά τη βοήθειά του σε μια υπόθεση, δεν του παίρνει πολύ χρόνο να αποφασίσει. Η Κλαρκ ερευνά τον θάνατο ενός μεγαλοδικηγόρου, το πτώμα του οποίου βρέθηκε μαζί με ένα απειλητικό σημείωμα. Στην άλλη πλευρά του Εδιμβούργου, ο Μπιγκ Τζερ Κάφερτι –η νέμεση του Ρέμπους από τα παλιά– έχει λάβει ένα πανομοιότυπο σημείωμα και μία σφαίρα μέσα από το τζάμι του παραθύρου του. Τώρα, εξαρτάται από την Κλαρκ και τον Ρέμπους να ενώσουν τις κουκκίδες και να σταματήσουν τον δολοφόνο. Στο μεταξύ, ο επιθεωρητής Μάλκολμ Φοξ ενώνει τις δυνάμεις του με μια μυστική ομάδα από τη Γλασκώβη που παρακολουθεί μια διαβόητη φαμίλια του υποκόσμου. Κάτι θέλουν και δεν θα σταματήσουν πουθενά μέχρι να το αποκτήσουν… Ο Ian Rankin επαναφέρει τους σπουδαιότερους χαρακτήρες του σε μια ιστορία που διερευνά τις πιο σκοτεινές γωνιές των ενστίκτων και των επιθυμιών μας.

The Judgements Of God

The subject of “Judgment” is a large one in the word of God and encompasses such, as the judgment of the cross, the judgment on the believer in chastening, the self judgment of the believer, the judgment of the believer’s works, at the judgment seat of Christ, with the exception of the last mentioned judgment, which has already been considered. These judgments are not related with the eschatological program of God. It is necessary to consider four judgments that have eschatological implications: the judgment on the nation Israel, the judgment of the nations, the judgment of the fallen angels and the judgment of the Great White Throne. This study will give explanatory reasons for these judgments.

This landmark book uncovers for the first time in detail one of the greatest horrors of the twentieth century: the vast system of Soviet camps that were responsible for the deaths of countless millions. Gulag is the only major history in any language to draw together the mass of memoirs and writings on the Soviet camps that have been published in Russia and the West. Using these, as well as her own original research in NKVD archives and interviews with survivors, Anne Applebaum has written a fully documented history of the camp system: from its origins under the tsars, to its colossal expansion under Stalin's reign of terror, its zenith in the late 1940s and eventual collapse in the era of glasnost. It is a gigantic feat of investigation, synthesis and moral reckoning.

Thomas Scott S Body

What did happen to the body of Thomas Scott? The disposal of the body of Canadian history's most famous political victim is the starting point for historian J.M. Bumsted's new look at some of the most fascinating events and personalities of Manitoba's Red River Settlement. To outsiders, 19th-century Red River seemed like a remote community precariously poised on the edge of the frontier. Small and isolated though it may have been, Red River society was also lively, well educated, multicultural and often contentious. By looking at well-known figures from a new perspective, and by examining some of the more obscure corners of the settlement's history, Bumsted challenges many of the widely held assumptions about Red River. He looks, for instance, at the brief, unhappy Swiss settlement at Red River, examines the controversial reputation of politician John Christian Shultz, and delves into the sensational scandal of a prominent clergyman's trial. Vividly written, "Thomas Scott's Body" pieces together a new and often surprising picture of early Manitoba and its people.

Sudan has historically suffered devastating famines that have powerfully reshaped its society. This study shows that food crises were the result of exploitative processes that transferred resources to a small group of beneficiaries, including British imperial agents and indigenous elites who went on to control the Sudanese state at independence.
