This volume addresses the questions of change and development in Eastern European and Russian labour relations thematically. A key focus of this volume is processes of change at enterprise level. The enterprise was a key institution of the previous system of economic and political regulation and thus constitutes a very specific legacy. This opening chapter has three main functions. It begins by considering briefly how labour relations were viewed under the command system and introduces the concept of legacy which is used throughout the book. Secondly, it locates the discussion in the context of existing comparative labour or industrial-relations research. Thirdly, it establishes the structure for the discussion in the following chapters.

Keywords:   labour relations, enterprise level, comparative labour, regulation
