Every revolution has to deal with the past. Present need often determines the way that new governments confront past events. The speed of the collapse of Communism in Eastern and Central Europe surprised many, not least because there was so little blood shed. However, with the collapse of any regime, they comes another to follow. Now each country was free to determine its own economic systems and political institutions, some countries re-named streets and buildings, while elsewhere political parties previously banned were beginning to re-emerge. In Romania, Bulgaria and Albania elderly kings and queens tried in vain to revive the idea of a constitutional monarchy. This thesis investigates the reform of land ownership in Romania and the ways in which collective property was privatized. It looks at the legal basis for such reform and uses case studies from two villages in Transylvania to show the implementation process.
