Sociology in Question 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
