In striving to provide an «authentic» interpretation of Stolypin land reform, cleared of mythology and ideological distortions, and defining it as destructive, the author treats implementation of its «post-soviet analogue» in a similar manner too. Drawing upon his multiyear publications in Rossiisky Ekonomichesky Zhurnal, he suggests to switch from radically liberal transformations to a pragmatic policy of large-scale state support of agriculture based on modern realities.
