Review quote

'those contributions which distil the essence of comprehensive and significant studies of the technical-scientific functional elites which expanded under the impact of industrialization are extremely worthwhile' Rudiger vom Bruch, Humboldt University of Berlin, German Historical Institute London Bulletin, Volume XV, No. 3, November 1993 'a major contribution to the increasingly popular field of professionalisation history ... German professional bodies seem on the whole to have grown more hesitantly than their western counterparts ... Though the history of professions does not make for easy reading, it is the strength of this book of essays that it goes a long way towards explaining this paradox.' R.J. Overy, King's College, London, Business History, Vol. 34, No. 2, Jan '92show more
