In a time when the professions are attracting new scrutiny, these four essays offer new insights into the process of professionalization in American society. The unifying theme is a scepticism concerning existing models of this process, and the authors insist that professional ideologies not be dismissed as mere verbal smoke screens designed to disguise self-interest. The professions need fresh scholarly attention to forge strong links between social and intellectual history.A UNC Press Enduring Edition -- UNC Press Enduring Editions use the latest in digital technology to make available again books from our distinguished backlist that were previously out of print.
