Labour Market and Precarity of Employment
Theoretical Reflections and Empirical Data from Hungary and Russia
The book reflects with heterogenous contributions - one presenting purely theoretical reflections, the other two looking more focussed on the empirical side: in Hungary and Russia - on precarity. It is of some special significance that the empirical contributions are not looking at the countries of the traditional core of capitalism.
Together, the contributions aim on enhancing the debate on precarity, with their special significance that they go beyond the standard deviations. This opens in particular in theoretical perspective an outlook that pushes thinking beyond the drive of reestablishing normalities of a supposed past welfare glory.
