Summary and Info
This work focuses on the new kinds of conflict that arise in the transition to a market economy. Following an editorial introduction, two papers theorize the results of empirical research into patterns of conflict and forms of trade unionism in Russian enterprises in the transition period. These are followed by a detailed case study of the development of an independent trade union in one large industrial enterprise, and a paper which explores changes in the status hierachy of the industrial enterprise. Two papers then address the much-neglected issue of gender differentiation at the work place, both papers question the supposed passivity of Russian women workers. The two final papers address the issue of conflict and change in the external relations of enterprises through case studies of the process of bankruptcy and of conflict between insiders and outsiders. This text is the second volume in the series "Management and Industry in Russia", reporting on the results of a programme of research into the restructuring of social relations in Russian industrial production.
