Originally published in 1970, Men in Mid-Career deals with the problems of men aged 35-40 who have invested half a work-life in one type of career and may now be at a turning-point. It is at this stage that they come to realise the implications of the commitments they have made during the last 15-20 years. By this time, their personal reputations rest mainly with one employing organisation and it is difficult for them to leave unless they take a bold step involving great risks and far-reaching implications for their families, homes and types of life. The author provides a comprehensive review of the literature on the subject that was emanating from the UK and US, and goes on to report on a detailed study of representative samples of managers and technical specialists in two large UK firms. The book juxtaposes the viewpoints of senior management and the man whose career is simultaneously a building block in a task-centred system and the repository of his identity.
