Career Studies

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


December 2012 | 1 592 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

These four volumes bring together the best and most significant work in the career studies literature canon to date. The articles in this major work have been masterfully selected by the set's esteemed editors for their exceptional impact and influence, as well as to demonstrate the range of disciplinary perspectives that have been used as different lenses to understand the concept of "career." The result is a highly comprehensive yet user-friendly collection, which includes material on both "vocational" and "organizational" career studies; a true touchstone text for any scholar interested in expanding their knowledge of this far-reaching field.

The set is organized around four central themes:
Volume 1: Foundations of Career Studies; taking a look at historical material on the development of career studies within different disciplines
Volume 2: Careers in Context; considering careers in relation to their surrounding social structures
Volume 3: Careers as Human Experience; attending to careers at the individual level
Volume 4: Careers in Practice; bringing together the practical implications of career studies for all groups of practitioners
