   schema:description "The analysis is based on original research conducted by Sarah Ashwin and her team of experienced Russian sociologists. Through a series of qualitative interviews, they followed the progress of 120 men and 120 women through the turbulent Russian labour market between 1999 and 2001. Adapting to Russia's New Labour Market includes chapters examining: the way in which the gender norms inherited from the Soviet era have influenced responses to transition; sex segregation and discrimination in the labour market; gender differences in work orientations and behaviour; who benefits from networks, and which life events are most likely to initiate downward trajectories. Scholarly, yet lively, this collection offers a valuable resource for students and scholars of Russian Studies, Gender Studies and Sociology, as well as anyone interested in understanding the human dimension of the transformation of the Russian labour market."@en ;

   schema:description "Economic reform in post-Soviet Russia produced a devastating decline in living standards, and widespread insecurity and uncertainty. This was felt most strongly in the sphere of employment, as enterprises--once the centre of Soviet social life--were thrown into crisis. How are men and women coping with the transformation of the Russian labour market that has occurred since the collapse of communism? Unemployment was widely expected to have a 'female face' and it was anticipated that women would be the main losers from reform. But these predictions have not been realised, and men have received increasing attention as it has become clear that many of them are finding it difficult to adjust to new conditions. This book aims to identify and explain gender differences in responses to Russia's transformed economic environment, and to reveal the way in which these influence both labour market outcomes, and the well being of men and women."@en ;
