The Collectivization of Agriculture in Communist Eastern Europe: Comparison and Entanglements

February 25, 2014

Edited by Constantin Iordachi, associate professor of comparative history at CEU, and Arnd Bauerkaemper, professor of history at Freie Universitaet in Berlin, this book explores the interrelated campaigns of agricultural collectivization in the Soviet Union and in the communist dictatorships established in Soviet-dominated Eastern Europe. Despite the profound, long-term societal impact of collectivization, the subject has remained relatively underresearched. This volume combines detailed studies of collectivization in individual Eastern European states with issue-oriented comparative perspectives at a regional level.
