Abstract:

This book examines the transformation of Soviet labour ideology during the last decade of the USSR, and its critical relationship to the collapse of the Soviet state. The author focuses on regime attempts to revive Soviet economic performance on the basis of increased labour productivity, and shows how their failure had unforeseen and catastrophic consequences for the legitimacy of the state. Far from reinvigorating concepts about the role and nature of labour in Soviet society, the regime succeeded only in demonstrating its own impotence and unsustainability.
