This represents a substantial and coherent body of work in an important subdiscipline of sociology, but it is presently fragmented and many of the essays are difficult to obtain. This volume assembles the best of these writings in a single place, making them more accessible for use as a whole. The ten essays are republished in their original form, each bearing the traces of the time and place it was written. In sum, they provide a fascinating account of an academic journey over a 30 year period. They are introduced with a foreword from the author, who places the work in context and offers some thoughts about how the work might be used by scholars in developing the field, to evaluate, for example, the effects of the New Labour period on professional autonomy.
