Pierre Bourdieu was Professor of Sociology at the Collège de France.
Weight of the World: Social Suffering in Contemporary Societyby Pierre Bourdieu
Several sociologists join Bourdieu (sociology, College de France) in this study of the new forms of social suffering, such as poor housing and education, the changing nature of work, or sweeping anti- immigration and other racist ideologies. This book tells the stories of many different people who are suffering under the new social order, including a steelworker laid off after 20 years in the same factory, a teacher struggling with urban violence, and an Algerian family living outside Paris in poor public housing.
