Россман В. И. М.: Издательский дом НИУ ВШЭ, 2013.
In this book, V. Rossman analyzes and summarizes the experience of public discussion about moving the Russian capital in the context of nation building and proposes a concept of the capital city as catalyst in that process. The author considers the current clash of ideas regarding a new capital and the various concepts, which he believes arise out of differing perceptions of what is Russia’s true identity. He gives a detailed analysis of proand contraarguments and their legal suppositions; the typology of suggested capitals, and applies aspects of geography, urban studies, spatial economics, studies of semiotics and symbolism of urban territories; and other disciplines. Rossman also considers other countries’ experience of moving capitals. He focuses not only on the soundness of choosing specific geographical locations, but rather on the various political and geopolitical strategies behind the choices present-ed. The author also studies various concepts of the capital and its transfer in Russian intellectual history. He conducts a comparative analysis of Moscow with the most important modern capitals and BRIC capitals, and investigates the specifics of its formation and anomalies of the Russian urban hierarchy.

This book is intended for geographers, historians, urban researchers, and anyone interested in the political situation in modern Russia.

Edited by: И. В. Глущенко, В. А. Куренной М.: Издательский дом НИУ ВШЭ, 2013.

Mayakovsky’s words ‘It’s Time, Forward!’ better than any political slogans, reflect the atmosphere in which Soviet cultural policy emerged. This book aims to declare a special preserve and methodological perspective for the study of Soviet cultural history. In it Soviet society is considered as a space of radical projecting and experimentation in cultural policy, which was far from homogeneous, often multidirectional, and sometimes chaotic and contradictory. It was a unique historic example of government intervention in the cultural sphere. The authors attempt to evaluate the social viability of institutions which formed in Russian society, both thanks to and in spite of Soviet cultural policy, and to assess the consequences of the decline and fall of some of those same institutions.

The book targets a wide audience, including culture researchers, sociologists, political scientists, historians, and anyone interested in Soviet history and culture.

Болдырев И. А. М.: Издательский дом НИУ ВШЭ, 2012.
Utopia and utopian consciousness have long been among the central themes of political debate and artistic practices. Ivan Boldyrev's book is devoted to Ernst Bloch (1885-1977), a German thinker who greatly contributed to the special philosophical and historical status of this subject and was able to bring together Marxist activism, eschatological metaphysics, and avant-garde art under the Utopian banner.  The book describes Bloch's intellectual evolution and his complex and ambiguous relationships with the most prominent philosophers of the 20th century– Georg Lukacs, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor Adorno. The 'polemic totality' of these relationships helps the paradoxical logic of utopian messianism to be understood.

This monograph continues the series of publications on the Russian labor market prepared by the team of scholars from the Center for Labour Market Studies at the Higher School of Economics. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of various aspects of informality in the Russian labour market. It discusses a wide range of informality related issues, including its economic nature and causes, evolution and composition, measurement and policy implications. Authors question the labour market segmentation theory and the popular thesis that informal employees represent an inferior segment of the labour force that is trapped in bad jobs. Significant attention is paid to costs and benefits of going informal for workers, firms, and the society. A special focus in the book is on earnings in the formal and informal sectors, their impact on evolution of inequality and formal-informal labour mobility. A few chapters explore impact of institutions (such as taxation and minimum wage) on incidence of informal work. Implications for subjective social status and household well-being are also explored. Most of the chapters presented in the book are based on studies that use large sets of microdata and modern econometric techniques.

Ванеян С. С. М.: Издательский дом НИУ ВШЭ, 2015.

This book comprises a collection of essays on vital problems of art history seen as the practice of reviving of meanings related to the visual reality of the past. Here the model for the investigator has een Ernst Gombrich, the art theorist, as well as art historian, whose scholarly discourse is truly creative. Gombrich revealed the performative core of any kind of scholarly knowledge. Gombrich's work and personality, and also the story of his relationships with Popper, Warburg, Panofsky, Mitchell, Preziosi, Wind and many others, give us insight in research as interpersonal communication in the variety of conceptual contexts, which causes specific illusive effects resembling the illusion which is usually considered typical of visual arts exclusively.

The book will be useful to specialists in esthetics, psychology and philosophy, and to all interested in art and its interpretation.
