Mostly Russian contributors offer nine studies on new kinds of
conflict and forms of trade unionism in post-Soviet Russia. The
topics include the development of an independent trade union in a
large ball-bearing factory, changes in the status hierarchy, gender
differentiation, and the external relations of enterprises during
bankruptcy and between insiders and outsiders. The series examines
the restructuring of social relations in Russian industry.
