Stolypin's Agrarian Reforms
by Broomhandle Books
This particular short essay on P.A. Stolypin's Agrarian Reforms in Russia, which is part of our Continuing Education Series, examines the improved condition of the peasantry that arose as a result of land reforms. While Stolypin's reforms freed the peasantry from the chains of virtual slavery, World War I cut short Russia's road to progress in this area.
