Title:The Repeasantization of an Uzbek Kolkhoz: An Ethnographic Account of Postsocialism

Abstract:By comparing modern historical vicissitudes, the ways in which socio-cultural life (including demographic features, holidays and life-cycle celebrations) has altered from a decade ago, and the decline of key food resources over the same period, the author provides readers with a number of comparisons as well as instances of repeasantization at the local level. Important parallels and contrasts are drawn between Uzbekistan and other socialist/postsocialist settings, such as China, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania. Repeasantization is a process whereby the focus of economic activity in villages becomes further centered on households and the pooling of family resources drawn from working the land and engaging in non-productive and non-professional types of work. The work comprises six chapters with an introduction and conclusion.
