Unnatural Deaths in the USSR, 1928-1954
Transaction Publishers, 1983年1月1日 - 63 頁
This astonishing and sobering account of government- and war-induced civilian deaths in the Soviet Union calculates that Soviet loss of life between 1928 and 1954 was far higher than Western exÂperts have ever believed. Applying mathematical techniques to Soviet demographic statistics, Dyadkin shows that Stalinist represÂsion and World War II must have taken the lives of between 43 and 52 million Soviet citizens.
In the first period, 1929-36, one of collectivization, Stalin controlÂled and eliminated classes; during the Great Purge of 1937-38, milÂlions of Communist party members and bureaucrats were executed, and then the purge extended into the Red Army. Dyadkin shows that World War II took close to 30 million lives and that during 1950-53 another 450,000 died in prison camps.
