18 editions published between 1986 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freidson guides his analysis by finding what power may be ascribed to formal, codified knowledge. He focuses on the institutions that provide intellectual workers with their knowledge, a regular living, organized political resources, and other means with which to translate formal knowledge into human activity. Surveying professionals, he establishes a basic foundation for tracing the sources and means of professional power. Key issues are discussed as to whether they exercise power in the workplace, in government policy-making, and in the shaping of our physical and social world

The professions and their prospects by Eliot Freidson( Book )

11 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixteen authors of various backgrounds have contributed original papers to the book which evaluates the role of the professions in society today and assesses their likely roles in the future. Comparatively general issues applicable to many professions are discussed in part one--occupational principle vs. Administrative principle, generating professional modes of self-regulation, professional freedom, professionalism and the individual, growing industrialization of the professions, unionism, and professional innovation in post-industrial society. Part two is devoted to a discussion of the present and future professional role of some specific professions: engineering, public accounting, medicine, priests and the church, teaching, social work, law, and professors and the university. Some aspects of these professions that are examined include: power structure, internal erosion, conservatism, accountability, professional-client relations, and professional status. The concluding section is directed toward the sociologist, "the professional who studies other professions". Two chapters deal with bias, reliability, and validity of sociological analysis. (Ea)

Professionalism : the third logic by Eliot Freidson( Book )

33 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new work explores the meaning and implications of professionalism as a form of social organization. Eliot Freidson formalizes professionalism by treating it as an ideal type grounded in the political economy he presents the concept as a third logic, or a more viable alternative to consumerism and bureaucracy. He asks us to imagine a world where workers with specialized knowledge and the ability to provide society with especially important services can organize and control their own work, without directives from management or the influence of free markets. Freidson then appraises the present status of professionalism, exploring how traditional and national variations in state policy and organization are influencing the power and practice of such professions as medicine and law. Widespread attacks by neoclassical economists and populists, he contends, are obscuring the social value of credentialism and monopolies. The institutions that sustain professionalism in our world are simply too useful to both capital and state to dismiss
