Item Description...
Overview
Professionals today wield an enormous public power. Collectively, their decisions affect the patient's plight, the client's fate, the student's future, the city's scape, the earth's sustainability, the worker's fair treatment, and the durability of institutions great and small. Yet professionals did not perceive themselves as power wielders. They feel beleagured, marginal, insufficiently appreciated, often under seige. Thus they tend to obscure for themselves their obligations to the common good. This book explores eight professions as they struggle with their double identity - as a means to a livelihood and as a "common calling in the spirit of public service." An interpretation of American culture emerges from its pages, as social critic William May opens up the ways in which each profession answers to something deep in the American spirit.
