This book tells the story of the principal European intellectual professions from the demise of the ancien regime to the rise of the European Union. A historical study which applies sociological concepts it creates a European-scale picture of the professions spanning over two centuries of change. Uniting the legal, medical, engineering and accounting professions it provides a comparative historical and sociological exploration of 'Professional Europe'.

Inspired by Bourdieu it rejects theories of professionalization drawing instead upon the sociology of crisis and theories on the decline of the professions to introduce among others, the topic of the intellectual professions' relationship with the fascist and authoritarian regimes.

Detailed, well defined and critical in its application Professional Men, Professional Women also examines the role of women within the professions and includes a devoted chapter conducting a twofold comparison between countries and professions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Maria Malatesta's sweeping examination of the major free professions in Europe from the end of the Ancient Regime to the beginning of the current millennium represents one of the crowning achievements of the "New Social History." Her book is truly imposing in its scope and in its command of the vast social science and historical scholarship on the subject. She traces the evolution of the legal, medical, engineering, and accounting professions over two centuries from gentlemanly vocations to their contemporary market-driven forms in Germany, France, Italy, and Great Britain. Her book should be an essential reference work for all those interested in the history of professions
