Reviews

'This excellently crafted qualitative study demonstrates how class is a powerful affective force in contemporary Russian society. Alexandrina Vanke is to be congratulated on her subtle and wide ranging theoretical reflexivity and for her sensitive and empathetic approach.'
Mike Savage, Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics

'Vanke's research is as timely as it is painstaking. She effortlessly reveals the hidden life of political engagement and deep content of 'ordinary peoples' lives in this pathbreaking new ethnography of Russia.'
Jeremy Morris, Professor of Global Studies, Aarhus University

'Drawing on a creative mix of Bourdieu, intersectionality theory and feminist geography, this deep study of postindustrial workers in contemporary Russia will challenge and enrich your views of class, everyday politics and the city.'
Loïc Wacquant, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley
