Understanding Bourdieu aims to explain Bourdieu′s work in a lively and accessible style with extensive reference to popular culture. Bourdieu′s work is central to contemporary social and cultural theory as well as research and teaching, however, understanding Bourdieu can be a challenge. This book uses a range of examples from popular culture to flesh out the material in accessible terms. As such it is an ideal primer for all beginning sociology and cultural studies students.

Review:

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
