This article provides an overview of the prehistory leading up to the abolition of serfdom in Russia, the proposals for peasant emancipation made by the provincial Committees of Gentry Deputies, the reception of these proposals by the Editing Commissions, and the debate on peasant emancipation in the Russian press. The focus of the article is on the misplaced impetus that led to the adoption of the communal ownership of peasant land as a centerpiece of the Great Reform legislation of 1861.
