For those looking for Soviet history (like I was) this book is not primarily about the Ukrainian famine. It is about the sociology of knowledge. Of the ten chapters within, nine chapters are about what Tottle sees as waves of disinformation and misinformation that have grown around the famine.

Only one chapter (Chapter Eight) is devoted to a discussion of what the real causes were, according to the author (class resistance, severe drought, policy mistakes). This is also the least polemic chapter of the book.
