Item description for Against Their Will: The History and Geography of Forced Migrations in the USSR by Pavel M. Polian...

During his reign over the former Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin oversaw the forced resettlement of six million people a maniacal passion that he used for social engineering. The Soviets were not the first to thrust resettlement on its population a major characteristic of totalitarian systems but in terms of sheer numbers, technologies used to deport people and the lawlessness which accompanied it, Stalins process was the most notable. Six million people of different social, ethnic, and professions were resettled before Stalins death. Even today, the aftermath of such deportations largely predetermines events which take place in the northern Caucasus, Crimea, the Baltic republics, Moldavia, and western Ukraine.

Polians volume is the first attempt to comprehensively examine the history of forced and semi-voluntary population movements within or organized by the Soviet Union. Contents range from the early 1920s to the rehabilitation of repressed nationalities in the 1990s, dealing with internal (kulaks, ethnic and political deportations) and international forced migrations (German internees and occupied territories).

An abundance of facts, figures, tables, maps, and an exhaustively-detailed annex will serve as important sources for further researches.

Reviews - What do customers think about Against Their Will: The History and Geography of Forced Migrations in the USSR?

Excellent source  Sep 25, 2005
An excellent edition to literature on the period of Stalin. Factual information broken down into time periods that show which populations Stalin and the NKVD targeted and why. It shouldn't be thought that Stalin was the only one involved in these tragedies that befell the various nationalities of the USSR, he had his reasons for his actions and they are listed and presented to the reader. Not to take away from the type of man he was, simply to understand that his actions had a cause. A great source to see all the nationalities that were touched by Stalin's forced 'migrations' from lesser known nationalities such as Iranians, Turks, Koreans, and Germans to more well known Latvians, Lithuanians, Estonians, Chechens, and so on and so forth. An invaluable source for numbers of those deported, reasons for their deportations, and what happened to them after they were deported.
