Khrushchev's Farming Revolution in the Post-Stalin Soviet Union

Aaron T. Hale-Dorrell

  • first history of Nikita Khrushchev's efforts to resolve the USSR's agrarian crisis through his corn campaign
  • draws from untapped archival sources only released in the 1990s
  • offers a rare look at how the Soviet Union produced and consumed food
