Plusnin U «Wandering Workers»

Although otkhodnichestvo is a mass phenomenon, it is not reflected in official economic statistics.

Based on numerous interviews with otkhodniks and local experts, this stunningly original work focuses on the central and northern regions of European Russia. The authors draw a social portrait of the contemporary otkhodnik and offer a sociological assessment of the economic and political status these ‘wandering workers’ live with.
