Work and Integrity: The Crisis and Promise of Professionalism in America: The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
William M. Sullivan
0787974587
November 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Sullivan examines the historical role of professionals in American society, pointing out that the professions have been affected and changed by new work patterns. He argues that, given increasing global interdependence coupled with emerging information technology, professionals in the public and private sector must re-examine their responsibility to larger society. Reinventing professionalism as a civic art is a central theme of the book. Thus, integrity in professional work includes the social dimensions of caring for people and purposes and making commitments to the social good. This is a well-documented scholarly treatise, more theoretical than applied. Highly recommended for academic libraries.Jane M.

A Larger Sense of Purpose: Higher Education and Society: Non Nobis Solum
Harold T. Shapiro
0691123632
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Review
Charles T. Clotfelter, Duke University : Shapiro clearly and persuasively enunciates his major theme--that universities have a responsibility for performing two important social functions. One is to serve existing society, and the other is to challenge it.
Michael McPherson, President, the Spencer Foundation, and former President of Macalaster College : This book reflects an effort by one of our most distinguished educational leaders to look beneath the surface of existing controversies and ask deeper questions about the role of the university in a modern liberal democracy. Shapiro's analysis is well tuned to the paradoxical character of the modern university as at once loyal servant and stubborn critic of the society that sustains it.
