The papers in this volume report on the findings of a large-scale research project involving an integrated programme of case study and survey research in four contrasting regions of Russia, as well as a systematic review of official and other data. This provides us with the first authoritative account of the scale, dynamics and forms of new private sector employment- the sources of income of urban households- the role of subsidiary agriculture in urban subsistence and the channels of and barriers to labour mobility.First published1999
