What People are Saying About This

Lisa Jardine

As we have come to expect from him, Pierre Bourdieu's lucid analysis of the field of cultural production once again provides us with key terms for understanding the issues at the forefront of current critical debate. His accounts of the economy of symbolic capital and of cultural power relations will undoubtedly become classic formulations, shaping future work on the sociology of culture.
