Abstract:
The reviewed volume, the result of a social anthropological research, is largely based on the PhD thesis in agricultural economics which Ştefan Dorondel defended at Humboldt University of Berlin. It examines the circumstances of the return of land property as it occurred in Romania’s rural society, focusing on the case study of two villages in Argeș county.
