Summary
During the twentieth century, 80 percent of all famine victims worldwide died in China and the Soviet Union. In this thoughtful study, Felix Wemheuer analyzes the historical and political roots of these socialist era famines, in which overambitious industrial programmes endorsed by Stalin and Mao Zedong created greater disasters than those suffered under pre-revolutionary regimes
