Rural Reform in Post-Soviet Russia

Rural Reform in Post-Soviet Russia reviews change in agricultural and rural life since 1990 through historical, political, sociological, and anthropological investigation. The contributors' interest is not so much in agriculture itself but in agrarian issues such as the relationship between rural interests and changing Russian institutions, the economic and social organization of rural households, and the quality of life in rural families and villages.

David J. O'Brien is a professor of rural sociology at the University of Missouri–Columbia. Stephen K. Wegren is an associate professor of political science at Southern Methodist University.

"An important collection on the rural economy and society in the Russian transition with contributions by leading scholars."

"This valuable book provides a penetrating analysis of the problems encountered in attempting to change age-old habits."
