The Peasant Question

  • Irina Marin
Chapter

Abstract

‘The Peasant Question’ opens up the discussion of the deep causes of the uprising analyzing from a cross-border perspective the status of the main actors of the 1907 uprising, the peasants, and their economic predicament in contrast to their peers across the triple frontier in Austria-Hungary and Tsarist Bessarabia. The transnational comparison between land tenure and the position of the peasantry in Romania and in the neighbouring provinces aims to identify those factors pertaining to legal framework and social practice that set Romania apart from its neighbours and led to different outcomes.
