Reviews

A leading French sociologist and maverick intellectual.
France's leading sociologist, its most influential intellectual and one of its angriest men.
The most convincing embodiment of the politically active intellectual since Jean-Paul Sartre or Michel Foucault.
Pierre Bourdieu ... was, for many, the leading intellectual of present-day France ... a thinker in the same rank as Foucault, Barthes and Lacan.
Since the 1960s Pierre Bourdieu's terrific constancy has been there to hold us to the vision and divisions of criticism, detachment, reason, truth.
Bourdieu is the rare kind of intellectual author who makes sense outside of the university.
