Domesticating Neo–Liberalism addresses how we understand the processes of neo–liberalization in post–socialist cities. The book develops a conceptualization of these processes that is grounded in the diversity of everyday economic practices and in the ways that the economies of neo–liberalism are ′domesticated′. Based on in–depth research in Poland and Slovakia, it explores how households attempt to create the circumstances for their social reproduction at times when labour markets and job prospects are being transformed and social relationships are rapidly changing. It investigates how households not only attempt to make these wider political–economic changes more tolerable but how, in doing so, they also establish some of the conditions for the re–making of neo–liberalization.
