This chapter analyses rural opposition to land privatization in the post-Soviet transition era that draws explicit parallels with the resistance by Russian peasants to early twentieth-century government programmes of land reform. It focuses on the failure of the effort to extend the policy of privatization to farmland, and the collapse of marketed output from the agricultural sector's large koholz units.
