The culture of professionalism has become so dominant in American life that, ironically, it has become invisible to most people. Professionalism has become something of an ideology, beyond the realm of rethinking, and 'acting professionally' has become an unquestioned standard of conduct. This book seeks to make visible such a culture that deserves serious reconsideration by researchers, professors, students, and educated general readers. Brown's research and examination in America's Culture of Professionalism covers both the academic world – the 'home office' of professionalism – and the social dimensions of problem solving in the public world.
