Drawing on the expertise of leading international scholars in each area of career studies, editors Hugh Gunz and Maury Peiperl have assembled a consummate set of writings, defining the field with a breadth of coverage and integration of topics not found elsewhere. From a view of the history of the field and a map of its elements to a set of essays about the future of careers and work, this volume provides the most complete reference available on the role of work careers in individual lives, institutions, and industries.
