 Kulak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kulaks (Russian: кула́к, kulak, "fist", literally meaning tight-fisted; Ukrainian: курку́ль, kurkul) is a pejorative term extensively used in Soviet political language, originally referring to relatively wealthy peasants in the Russian Empire who owned larger farms and used hired labour, as a result of the Stolypin reform introduced since 1906.
The kulaks were to be liquidated as a class and subject to one of three fates: death sentence, labour settlements (not to be confused with labor camps, although the former were also managed by the GULAG), or deportation "out of regions of total collectivisation of the agriculture".
Tens of thousands of alleged kulaks were summarily executed, property was confiscated to form collective farms, and many families were deported to Siberia and Soviet Central Asia.

 For the record: Conquest's statement before the famine commission (11/02/86)
Lenin had devised, for a Marxist analysis of village life, a division of the peasantry into "kulaks"; "middle peasants"; and "poor peasants" plus a "village proletariat." This implied a "class struggle" in the village which in fact failed to occur, but was thereupon imposed by the representatives of the cities.
The kulak category was broadened by including "sub-kulaks" who were not kulaks even by party definition, except that they shared kulak attitudes.
They looked on the so called kulaks as cattle, swine, loathsome, repulsive; they had no souls; they stank; they all had venereal diseases; they were enemies of the people...

 Canadian Slavonic Papers: peasants' kulak: Social identities and moral economy in the Soviet countryside in the 1920s, ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Western studies of the postrevolutionary Russian village have long minimized socio-economic division and struggle among peasants.1 The existence of the "kulak" (or rural capitalist) is often downplayed as Stalinist fabrication or treated as little more than a political issue exaggerated by leftist factions in the Communist Party during the power struggles of the 1920s.
By purging the literature of class struggle and the kulak bogey, Western historiography has, in a sense, thrown out the baby with the bath water.
And if the bath water is the kulak, the baby in this case is rural society with all its complexities and nuances.
