Overview


“ . . . [The] value of the book lies very much in the broad sweep with which it tries to recast our understanding of masculine domination. . . . [It] opens up the field for an investigation of the gender order as an ongoing social project of both men and women. . . . Bourdieu’s greatest contribution to the study of gender is not so much in the questions that he has answered, but rather in the questions he is allowing us to pose.”—Contemporary Sociology

Finding in Kabyle society a living reservoir of the Mediterranean cultural tradition, Bourdieu (sociology, Coll<`e>ge de France) uses it to disclose the symbolic structures of the andro-centric unconscious that survives in men and women in his own society. He describes masculine domination as a symbolic violence<-->gentle, invisible, and pervasive<-->that is exercised through cognition and misrecognition, knowledge and sentiment, often with the unwitting consent of the dominated. was published by Editions du Seuil in 1998.
