Now Melissa was alone, pregnant and in need of a job—and her new employer was Charles Avery!

Hiding her feelings for her boss as well as the embarrassing truth about her situation seemed a wise professional move. But could she resist Charles's charm and three disarming kids who didn't want a nanny, but a mommy?

Though informed by case studies conducted in Ukraine, this book transcends its country-specific scope. It explains why informality in governance is not necessarily transitory or temporary but a constant in most political systems. The book discusses self-protective mechanisms, responses to incomplete or unfocused policy making, and strategies employed by individuals, classes, and communities to respond to unusual demands. The book argues that when state or company expectations exceed normative behavior, informal behavior continues to thrive. New tactics help cope with the reality of governance. Informality also challenges the values imposed by power through attitudes and behaviors that take place "beyond" or "in spite of" the state.
