Reviews

“There is elegant coverage and discussion of Ukraine’s recent history and politics. Conceptually and methodologically the book is coherent and well justified.” • Jeremy Morris, Aarhus University

“This is a very substantial body of work. The insights are both novel and nuanced. While the account is especially compelling in that it is centered in Ukraine, there really is no comparable work of this depth for any of the post-Soviet states.” • Stephen Crowley, Oberlin College

Description

Industrial workers in Ukraine have a complex political lifeworld because their political action aimed at bringing radical social change coexists with a demobilizing stance that condemns all political participation as corrupt. This contradictory attitude to politics defines the character of populist mass mobilizations that shook Ukraine in 2004 and 2014, as well as the electoral overhaul of 2019 and the popular response to the Russian invasion in 2022. Based on three years of fieldwork in the city of Kryvyi Rih, the book focuses on the moral economy that constitutes the working class and structures its relations with other social groups.

Denys Gorbach is a teaching and research adjunct at the University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin. His research interests include political economy, social movements, and working-class formation in the post-Soviet region.
