• Resilience and unemployment: A case study of East German women

      Beck, Vanessa; Wagener, Debbie; Grix, Jonathan (Routledge, 2005-03)
      This article discusses unemployment in the former East Germany and the impact that exceptionally high unemployment in the new German states has had on East German women since reunification. It reflects, in particular, on the potential influence of their experience of life in the GDR in developing coping strategies to deal with the effects of unemployment, an ongoing resistance to unemployment and, most significantly, to a male-breadwinner ethos.
