   schema:reviewBody ""Professional Work: A Sociological Approach is an introduction examining recent trends in the world of professional work. Authors Kevin Leicht and Mary Fennell review the history and theory of managerial and professional work, and then describe specific contemporary changes in professions and work-settings. Through the research of recent demographics in the workplace, the authors reveal an increasingly unified elite division of labor that casts the role of the manager as a "new professional."" "The book includes important data on racial diversity and gender representation in fields such as law and medicine, giving an accurate and up-to-date overview of two major professions. Also included in the book are definitions of key terms, and over 75 original tables and figures, making this an accomplished text on contemporary organizations and professional labor."--Jacket." ;
