Tatyana Zaslavskaya and Her Contribution to the Study of Post-Communist Transformations

Social Sciences. 2015. No. 3. P. 3-20.
Translator: I. Borisova.
This article attempts to summarize and categorize Tatyana Zaslavskaya's contribution to the study of post-communist transformation processes. The focus of attention is the "social mechanism of the transformation process," its main features and cognitive capacity, and the basic building blocks and relationships of the original "activities-structural" conception of this mechanism. It is shown that Zaslavskaya's conception, when used to explain the patterns and regularities of real social change, provides future researchers with effective and relevant theoretical and methodological tools for further exploratory research.
