Bourdieu′s work is formidable-the journey is tough. Follow this French foreign legion - take an apple, take a hanky - but take this book. Author: Peter Beilharz
Pierre Bourdieu′s work is now coming to be seen as one of the twentieth century′s most important contributions to our thinking about the world. Understanding Bourdieu is a comprehensive and lucid introduction to his work. Measured and judicious, it′s the best road map of this significant body of work currently available. Author: John Frow
A good range of recent examples from popular culture are used to flesh out the material in accessible terms. These examples are deployed very well indeed - rather than being tacked-on illustrations of an idea, they are instead used at the heart of the explanation of the ideas. Author: David Gauntlett
