A cura di Marsha Siefert, segnaliamo l'uscita del volume: Labor in State-Socialist Europe, 1945-1989. Contributions to a History of Work. I sedici saggi offrono nuovi modi concettuali ed empirici per comprendere la storia dei regimi comunisti dell'Europa centro-orientale, dalla fine della seconda guerra mondiale al 1989. Come specificato nell'introduzione, «the contributors look at work and workers in Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, the German Democratic Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Yugoslavia. They explore the often contentious relationship between politics and labor policy, dealing with diverse topics including workers’ safety and risks; labor rights and protests; working women’s politics and professions; migrant workers and social welfare; attempts to control workers’ behavior and stem unemployment; and cases of incomplete, compromised, or even abandoned processes of proletarianization. Workers are presented as active agents in resisting and supporting changes in labor policies, in choosing allegiances, and in defining the very nature of work».
