Reviews

"A synthesis and amplification to those already familiar with Bourdieu's work and a useful introduction for new readers." - Ethics "To read In Other Words is to enjoy a mind that works on many levels at once. Bourdieu seems perfectly able to reason coherently about any number of subjects (here he takes up sport, art, fieldwork, literature, philosophy, and opinion polls, among others)... It is an excellent informal guide to Bourdieu's sociological self-understanding... This book may well be just the right introduction to an elegant and important thinker - possibly the most inventive thinker in sociology today." - American Journal of Sociology
