This text aims to provide an accessible but challenging introduction to Bourdieu's ideas. In a series of discussions, lectures and interviews, the range of Bourdieu's ideas is laid out and its relation to other disciplines and other sociological schools explored. The issues developed include: the sociology of culture, leisure and taste; the intrinsic reflexivity of social science; and the role of language in society and in social sciences. This text is suitable for students, researchers and academics in social theory, sociology, cultural studies and communication.

Industry Reviews

`Bourdieu offers an easy introduction to some ideas and writing that have made a profound impact on general social theory.... Like his other writings, this book shakes the theoretical field of social science at its core. It invites the reader to explore a risky but fundamentally humanistic and optimistic sociology' - Anthropological Quarterly
