One of the most sweeping works of social criticism to appear in
years, this work offers a bold theory of modern classes and a
comprehensive portrait of the modern professional. Drawing on one
of the largest studies ever undertaken, including interviews with
over 1,000 professionals, the authors show how experts, claiming a
monopoly on many types of knowledge, are radically transforming the
economic and social order. This book demonstrates how this has
resulted in many citizens becoming deeply insecure about their
competence to manage private and public affairs without
professional guidance. The authors make a case for a society that
radically democratizes knowledge while retaining many non-exclusive
aspects of professionalism.
