Item description for On the Verge of Convergence: Social Stratification in Eastern Europe (Ceu Medievalia) by Henryk Domanski...
Based upon unparalleled comparative surveys and newly obtained data, Domanski's new book provides a major contribution to the study of social transformation in Central and Eastern Europe after 1989. Focusing on Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia and Slovakia, the author provides substantial comparative information relating to social structure, mobility, inequality, lifestyle and economic stratification.
Applying the Erikson-Goldthorpe classification of class positions, Domanski effectively presents fully comparable data to enable political comparisons to be made with other countries, especially those with firmly established free-market economies.
On the Verge of Convergence contributes to a clearer understanding of the on-going process of social transformation within developing capitalist societies.
