From the Publisher"The French sociologist is already making a significant impact inmedia studies and his approach, as illustrated in this volume,represents one of the most sophisticated sociological approaches tojournalism research."
British Journal of Sociology
"These excellent detailed studies, when combined with a veryclear introductory essay by Benson and Neveu, and an accessible,previously untranslated 1995 lecture by Bourdieu himself make thiswithout question an important and useful volume."
Theory and Society
"A concise and thought-provoking starting point for the furtherscholarly and public discussion of the structural limitations aswell as potential for change inherent in contemporaryjournalism."
"Bourdieu and the Journalistic Field places journalism squarelyback in the sociological imagination. Deftly examining theintersections journalism cohabits with politics, economics,education, and activism, it uses the work of Bourdieu to considerjournalism as a sociological phenomenon. Required reading for thosewho want to better understand modern journalism in complexsocieties."
Barbie Zelizer, University of Pennsylvania
"Timely and informative, this book builds a valuable bridgebetween social theory and journalism. Bourdieu opens up analysis ofthe journalistic field, but the contributors to this volume alsoimprove our understanding of how to put Bourdieu’ssociological approach to work."
Craig Calhoun, New York University
"The book is a valuable contribution to the formation anddevelopment of the field theory of journalism."
Anna Horolets, Warsaw School of Social Psychology
