Skorobogatov A. Высшая школа экономики, 2012

The principal result of this research is that the valuable skills have a negative and significant effect on alcohol abuse. We found that a higher professional level is consistent with a stronger negative relationship between earnings and alcohol-related behaviors and problems. The explanation of the result is proposed in that the pecuniary losses imposed on an individual by alcohol-related physical inability are positively conditioned by the valuable skills.

The main idea of this paper is that some sort of legal theory dealing with the law’s social impact is an indispensable element of the legal profession in the time of late modernity. Can legal theory provide an adequate understanding of the social context of the application of law, relying solely on internal resources? If not, which interdisiplinary discourse is the best and why?

This paper investigates causative constructions in Mehweb, a lect of the Dargwa group of the East Caucasian (Nakh-Daghestanian) language family. In Mehweb, it is possible to build a causative construction by using a causative predicate and the predicate of caused action. Originally such verbs conveyed the meaning of physical causation of motion and left the causee on its own. Constructions of this kind do not qualify as canonical analytic (periphrastic) causatives, because they are not fully grammaticalized. I describe them as quasi-causatives. Usually, either a morphological or periphrastic causative marker is used in one utterance. Mehweb shows some evidence for double causative marking by combining a separate verbal form as the main causative predicate with a dependent verbal form which is marked with a morphological causative affix, producing only one causative meaning.

The goal of the paper is to suggest the methodological framework of social exchange for analysis of employment relations. Our literature review revealed confusion concerning the definition of social exchange in the context of labour processes and employee-organisation relations. The latter are complex and imply all elements of reciprocal and negotiated exchange as well as economic and social forms of exchange. We focus on rules and means of exchange as well as power-dependence relations during the work process. The concept of “psychological contracts” that embodies the social exchange approach in empirical studies is also under consideration. Methodological limitations of current concepts and measures based on exchange methodology are discussed. The authors argue that deepening and specification of key parameters of social exchange approach could be very analytically productive in sociological research of employment relations seen as employee-employer mutual obligations

This research analyzes the impact of the degree of omnivorousness on consumer choice in the book market. Panel Scanner data for 2012-2015 were provided by a Saint Petersburg chain store. The final sample was restricted to 10,789 purchase occasions made by 3,709 loyal clients in 2015. We assessed the degree of omnivorousness through the use of purchase histories of various book genres. A mixed logit model was employed to control for unobserved differences in preferences. The analysis revealed that consumers in the book market are highly heterogeneous, and this is partially explained by their degree of omnivorousness. Concerning such book characteristics like cover type, rating, format size, and publication year, omnivores’ preferences differ from univores’. However, the anticipated distinction in the coefficients of price and number of pages, based on previous researches, was not proved.

Being one of the most significant modern urban inventions, subway is considered as the laboratory of urban life in general. It brought to life new spatial structures, types of communication, rules and skills of living in the city. The anthropological approach to subway focusing on the subway users is suggested. Subway users are identified both as those who follow the prescribed trajectories and as the active interpreters of the subway scenarios. Their skills and competences, bodily practices are analyzed as the ones (dis)connecting city and subway. The usage of the subway is described as a tool that gives new possibilities to urbanites in their management and coping with the plurality of everyday urban experiences.
