520    Between 1900 and 1990, there were several periods of grain
       and other food shortages in Russia and the former Soviet 
       Union, some of which reached disaster proportions 
       resulting in mass famine and death on an unprecedented 
       scale. New stocks of information not previously accessible
       as well as traditional official and other sources have 
       been used to explore the extent to which policy and 
       vagaries in climate conspired to affect agricultural 
       yields. Were the leaders' (Stalin, Krushchev, Brezhnev and
       Gorbachev) policies sound in theory but failed in practice
       because of unpredictable weather? How did the Soviet 
       peasants react to these changes? What impact did Soviet 
       agriculture have on the overall economy of the country? 
       These are all questions that are taken into account.
