MEDIA REVIEWS
This sparkling and unusually coherent collection of essays emphasizes the American reception and adaptation of Bourdieu's work. It shows how Bourdieu has been resisted and embraced and discusses how his terms and methods might be both used and modified by American academics. Theoretical reflections are productively complemented by empirical investigations of non-canonical and popular artistic expressions and by discussions of the position of women in Bourdieu's thought. -- Marshall Brown, University of Washington
Readers in different national contexts should use [this book] to reflect on the social factors affecting their responses to Bordieu's work. * Times Literary Supplement, (London) *
The book Pierre Bourdieu is useful to researchers who contemplate what really useful knowledge and work are in contemorary academe where social structures and cultural forms too often conform to the marketplace logic of late capitalism. * Interchange *
Intellectual historians, sociologists, anthropologists and anyone interested in the discipline of cultural studies will want to spend some time with this book. * International Social Science Review *
