Dritte Sektion: Arbeiter in sozialen und politischen Konfliktkonstellationen. Einführung

  • Workers always have something to complain about - even in the ,workers’ and peasants’ states’ of state socialism. Many of the causes of worker discontent across eastern European states in the period from the late 1940s to 1990 were similar, although varying in level and intensity at different times in different areas. What differed were the ,hard‘ and ,soft‘ institutional strategies for dealing with worker discontent; the varying resources, alliances and interests of workers; and the varying forms of protest, in the light of particular historical conditions and distinctive heritages of experience and culture. A comparative approach, paying attention both to changes within the working classes and to wider social changes across time, can yield some potentially very fruitful hypotheses about patterns of worker protest in eastern European communist states.
