“When Things Become Property: Land Reform, Authority and Value in Postsocialist Europe and Asia”

We are happy to announce the publication of the new book “When Things Become Property: Land Reform, Authority and Value in Postsocialist Europe and Asia”, edited by Thomas Sikor, Stefan Dorondel, Johannes Stahl and Phuc Xuan To. Stefan Dorondel is a long time member of InASEA and member of the Advisory Board.

The book is published by Berghahn and can be ordered here.

“Governments have conferred ownership titles to many citizens throughout the world in an effort to turn things into property. Almost all elements of nature have become the target of property laws, from the classic preoccupation with land to more ephemeral material, such as air and genetic resources. When Things Become Property interrogates the mixed outcomes of conferring ownership by examining postsocialist land and forest reforms in Albania, Romania and Vietnam, and finds that property reforms are no longer, if they ever were, miracle tools available to governments for refashioning economies, politics or environments.”
