Reviews

“A welcome addition to the ongoing discussion, since it focuses on a region where inequality is often assumed to be a less pressing issue due to the common state socialist past. … The way the volume is structured around the theoretical framework and its comparative nature makes it a good choice for readers both in academia and in policy making who wish to familiarise themselves with the region and expand their knowledge on how different institutional set-ups influence inequality.” (Ákos Máté, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 68 (7), 2016)
