The e-book addresses an important area of human experience - the world of work, as it relates to people who choose management as a career. This issue examines careers from a cross-cultural perspective and illuminates what is the same and what is different across cultures.

In the global village of the 21st century it is crucial for researchers and practitioners to expand their perspective to include other cultures and other theoretical perspectives beyond those offered by traditional vocational choice theories. A plurality of theoretical perspectives adds to the different social constructions represented by the different cultures.

While the e-book focuses attention on career choice in management, it is based on the assumption that understanding the antecedents, correlates and consequences of people's vocational choice to become managers will not only help researchers and practitioners and benefit managers - the leaders of the organizational stage - but will improve understanding of career choice in general.
