Handbook of Career Theory


Handbook of Career Theory

This cross-disciplinary text is designed to appeal to a diversity of social science scholars. The central focus is on new ways of viewing the career, or how working lives unfold over time. Fresh views from psychology, social psychology, sociology, anthropology, organization theory, economics, and political science are among those represented in the twenty-five chapter anthology. The design of the handbook in three parts--current approaches, new ideas, and future directions--is intended to engage the reader in the debate from which new and better career theories can be developed.


 Reviews:

"The field of career development is of growing importance, both as an academic discipline and as an important component of heightened practitioner emphasis on human resource management. This handbook provides a much needed infusion of new thinking to the field, thereby benefiting both its theoretical foundations and providing some additional perspectives within which future career practice can flourish."

"...comprehensive and sweeping in its coverage of progress in the field." Barry Schlosser, The Independent Practitioner
