Land Reform in Russia: Institutional Design and Behavioral Responses (Yale Agrarian Studies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This ambitious work is the definitive account of Russias land reform initiatives from the late 1980s to today. In Russia, a country controlling more land than any other nation, land ownership is central to structures of power, class division, and agricultural production.

 

The aim of Russian land reform for the past thirty years—to undo the collectivization of the Soviet era and encourage public ownership—has been largely unsuccessful. To understand this failure, Stephen Wegren examines contemporary land reform policies in terms of legislation, institutional structure, and human behavior. Using extensive survey data, he analyzes household behaviors in regard to land ownership and usage based on socioeconomic status, family size, demographic distribution, and regional differences. Wegrens study is important and timely, as Russian land reform will have a profound effect on Russias ability to compete in an era of globalization.

About the Author

Stephen Wegren is professor of political science and director of International and Area Studies at Southern Methodist University. He lives in Dallas, TX.
