Pierre Bourdieu is one of the key social theorists of the century. For the past forty years his many publications have defined a new approach to the study of such diverse fields as Education, Political Science, Cultural Studies, Gender, Sport, Language and the Media. There have been many commentaries on his work. This book is the first to offer a number of empirical studies conducted by researchers working with his ideas.

Michael Grenfell is Professor of Education and Director of Research at the University of Southampton.Review:
"The book manages that extraordinary feat of offering both accessible introductions to Bourdieu's concepts that are 'good to think with' whilst also offering a depth of analysis that will engage scholars already familiar with Bourdieu's work. Whether a chapter says something new about familiar concepts like habitus, field, or capital, or it introduces less discussed concepts like conatus, the writing stretches the reader's understanding of what sociological theory can be." --Arthur Frank, University of Calgary
