The Handbook of Career Studies brings together, for the first time in a single work, a comprehensive scholarly treatment of the major topics within the growing field of career studies. 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.
