This title was first published in 2001. Of the many far reaching issues facing post-communist states in the wake of the collapse of communist rule, few have continued to pose such dilemmas for future progress as the land question. This book provides a historical account of national and local attempts to reform land ownership and agricultural production and in particular, the way in which land law defined the land question. Using archive work to demonstrate the selectivity of the law in righting wrongs and case studies to illustrate the practical obstacles to attempts at reconstructing the pre-communist system, this work is a critical and detailed portrait of the forces that stand to shape the future of post-communist rural life.

"These are hallowed grounds we live on, that those before us spared nothing including their lives for which enabled you and me the freedom and liberty that we now have. Our freedom and liberty is now eroding before our very eyes. We must grasp quickly the task before us to secure our liberties. We must combat tyranny and terrorism at all cost to ensure our Freedom!" By Don Wallace 5th day of June 2004 “We shall not belabor our founding, henceforth we shall belabor our founding principles; to which have propelled and led America to greatness during seasons of stress. We must covenant the blood that has been spilled keeping us focused. Our Liberties are at risk.” Don Wallace June 11, 2011 Living in America after World War II, the book reflects on where our country stood and where we have evolved to in sixty plus years.

People have been friendly and supportive of one another for most of this period of time. But life is forever changing, as you will find as you read this story.

Wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird • ein sicheres, auf Fakten basierendes Gerüst besitzen, um die Welt so zu sehen, wie sie wirklich ist • die zehn gängigsten Arten von aufgebauschten Geschichten erkennen • bessere Entscheidungen treffen können • wahre Factfulness erreichen – jene offene, neugierige und entspannte Geisteshaltung, in der Sie nur noch Ansichten teilen und Urteile fällen, die auf soliden Fakten basieren
