Egalité et inégalités en Europe de l'Est
This book studies the évolution of inequalities in time and attempts to identify the factors which account for : either the persistance of certain phenomena of inequality or the appearance of new phenomena. Soviet-type institutions produce cleavages and constraints which limit the scope of egalitarian ambitions by introducing new inequalities. The interest of the book is two-fold. On one hand, it covers the social, économie and political field as a whole (the authors study inequalities in income, consumption, social mobility, way of living, schooling, careers). On the other hand, the comparative approach leads to a reflection on the measure of social inequality, which could be renewed in the light of the expériences of Eastern Europe.
