From the Publisher
"The French sociologist is already making a significant impact in media studies and his approach, as illustrated in this volume, represents one of the most sophisticated sociological approaches to journalism research."
British Journal of Sociology
"These excellent detailed studies, when combined with a very clear introductory essay by Benson and Neveu, and an accessible, previously untranslated 1995 lecture by Bourdieu himself make this without question an important and useful volume."
Theory and Society
"A concise and thought-provoking starting point for the further scholarly and public discussion of the structural limitations as well as potential for change inherent in contemporary journalism."
"Bourdieu and the Journalistic Field places journalism squarely back in the sociological imagination. Deftly examining the intersections journalism cohabits with politics, economics, education, and activism, it uses the work of Bourdieu to consider journalism as a sociological phenomenon. Required reading for those who want to better understand modern journalism in complex societies."
Barbie Zelizer, University of Pennsylvania
"Timely and informative, this book builds a valuable bridge between social theory and journalism. Bourdieu opens up analysis of the journalistic field, but the contributors to this volume also improve our understanding of how to put Bourdieu’s sociological approach to work."
Craig Calhoun, New York University
"The book is a valuable contribution to the formation and development of the field theory of journalism."
Anna Horolets, Warsaw School of Social Psychology
