Since the late 1980s the experiences of work and employment in the former communist world have been profoundly transformed. Work, Employment and Transition brings together a series of essays by leading international scholars which highlights the varied and complex forms that work and employment restructuring are taking in the post-soviet world, and makes important theoretical contributions to our understanding of these transformations.
'Unlike many such compendia … this collection is remarkably coherent, focused and cumulative … there is a remarkable unity of purpose and theoretical orientation. Owing to careful editing, and careful organization of the seminar series, this is far superior to most collections of essays by diverse authors.' - Area
