The Russian labour market has been hailed by some economists as being 'perfectly flexible' because Russia has achieved enormous employment restructuring with minimal unemployment, and by others as plagued by rigidities since pay structures have been frozen, inequality has increased and job creation has been negligible.. "Simon Clarke addresses these empirical and theoretical issues on the basis of statistical, survey and case study data collected within the framework of a large-scale collaborative research programme on the restructuring of labour and employment in Russia.. "The Formation of a Labour Market in Russia will be of interest to scholars of transition studies and labour economics, industrial relations specialists and sociologists of labour.

Editorial Reviews

Clarke (sociology, U. of Warwick, England) draws on data from statistical surveys and case studies collected within the framework of a large-scale collaborative research program by development agencies on the restructuring of labor and employment in Russia. He reviews the historical context and tackles theoretical issues before providing a detailed analysis of the development of the labor market through the interaction of strategies by employers and employees. Two more volumes are expected to emerge from the study, on the segmentation of the Russian labor market and on household survival strategies, presumably during those long months or years when workers are not being paid.
