We will be discussing a chapter from a book manuscript tentatively titled The Wrath of Change: State Elite, Land Politics, and the Transformation of the Postsocialist Landscape in Romania. The book manuscript looks at the environmental changes which paralleled the political and economic ones. It seeks to understand the unintended outcomes of the land reform in postsocialist Romania. Severe deforestation is one of these. The chapter looks at the political dynamics and social relations between the state, which is the owner and manager of a National Park in the Southern Carpathians, local political elite, and forest owners. The three actors struggle for imposing meanings, over what the landscape is, what it is good for and who should define the ways it is managed and used.
