Csaba Mako (MNP 87, Hungary) has published a new book, Working It Out? The Labour Process and Employment Relations in the Knowledge Economy.
The book is the fruit of number of years of collaboration amongst a group of experts (labour lawyers, economists, sociologists) with a multi-disciplinary, multi-professional and multinational background. It draws together a series of studies investigating different dimensions of this change centred on the reconfiguration of the labour process and employment relations within the context of institutional transformation. Hungary, as with most of the Central and East European (CEE) post-socialist countries, is affected by these changes. Almost twenty years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, these countries are still groping their way forward as capitalist systems, and their still transforming politics, civil society and economies are creating a variety of models of capitalism in the region. Whether these models are transitional or more permanent remains to be seen.
The book is available for online purchase.
