This short critical introduction to the sociology of Pierre Bourdieu is set forth clearly. Where Bourdieu's original writings are often densely argued and ambiguous, Richard Jenkins is direct, concise and to the point. He emphasizes Bourdieu's contributions to the theory and methodology while also dealing in detail with his substantive studies of education, social stratification and culture.

Reviews for Pierre Bourdieu

'As Jenkins points out in the final pages of his book, criticism can be the sincerest form of flattery. I particularly relished his critical approach to the work of Bourdieu and believe that he has written a timely introduction which both undergraduates and experienced teachers will find stimulating and enjoyable.'- Mike Hepworth, University of Aberdeen
