THIS BOOK EXPLORES ‘GROWING UP WORKING-CLASS’ IN POST-SOVIET Russia by examining how
young women and men graduating from vocational colleges experience transitions to adulthood in the
context of the transformation of the economic and educational systems and patterns of family and
everyday life. It describes how young people construct their pathways to adulthood and realise their life
plans, and how these pathways and plans are structured by the institutional context of Russian society
and the resources young people can access and mobilise.
