"[Iankova] makes a number of important contributions to our understanding of industrial relations in post-Communist societies." American Journal of Sociology
"Innovative..." Foreign Affairs
This book examines the relationship between governments, labor and business in central and eastern Europe as capitalism develops. This triple forum for social dialogue in Bulgaria and Poland is described as "tripartism," a new post-communist species of state-society interaction and a brand of capitalism distinct from American neo-liberalism, western European neo-corporatism and Japanese statism. The book explains variations in the establishment and functioning of tripartite institutions across central and eastern European countries, industries and regions, with corporatist legacies and legacies of extrication paths from state socialism.
