About this book

Informed by in-depth case studies focusing on a wide spectrum of micro and macro post-socialist realities, this book demonstrates the multi-faceted nature of informality and suggests that it is a widely diffused phenomenon, used at all levels of a society and by both winners and losers of post-socialist transition.

Reviews

“The book gives an excellent overview on the issues of informality in post-Soviet countries. It provides a broad perspective of the main aspects concerning informality in society, emphasising, but not limiting itself to economics. It is easy to read … . The book may be recommended not only to scholars, but also to policy makers, practitioners and anyone who is interested in the post-Soviet region.” (Ilona Baumane-Vītoliņa, Europe-Asia Studies, Vol. 69 (1), 2017)

“This book presents a compelling and valuable analysis of informal practices in the post-socialist space. … This book will be of interest to researchers seeking to understand the ways in which informal practices are experienced and become embedded in everyday practices.” (Thomas O’Brien, Global Crome, Vol. 13 (3), September, 2016)
