Beschreibung

How does one become a member of an elite profession? Managing Elites examines how elites-in-training contest, rationalize, and ultimately embrace their dominant positions in society. Using interviews with law and MBA students, the author shows that becoming elite is not a straightforward process without tensions. Successful socialization outcomes--employment in large corporate law firms or prominent investment banks and consulting firms--require both accomodation and resistance to ideologies about achievement and meritocracy.

Pressestimmen

This interesting and clearly written book should help extinguish the sense one sometimes gets in introductory sociology classes that everything of significance for the sociology of the professions has already been done. This book should appeal to those seeking to understand the sociological character of the students attending the nation's elite law and business schools. Education This book should be required reading in the professions' courses on social responsibility and ethics, and in sociology courses on the professions. It would also fit the syllabi of many courses on social stratification and inequality. Work and Occupations She highlights tension between individual and collectivity, and between competing and cooperating, which marks the students' experiences, and notes that students tend to develop a cynical outlook on their education, which they see as arcane and minimally practical. Law and Social Inquiry This book has the promise of becoming a major contribution to our understanding of social reproduction processes, and from a vantage point that is indeed vastly understudied: elites. There is a fascinating, important, and previously untold story here, and moreover, the author has really rich and interesting data with which to tell this story. -- Ira Silver, Framingham State College
