This essay deals in general with the Agrarian Reform and analyses more specifically why it has failed. It is an attempt to establish the reason why a post-revolutionary land reform which was born with so much hope, for those who initiated it, is nowadays considered a failure.
In this essay I have put forward the idea that it was the fact that the Communist Party, who initiated the land reform, was removed from power but not completely deprived of influence that caused the failure of the land reform. That is, the fact that their political revolution was incomplete caused the land reform to be left incomplete and therefore it failed.
