Description

Pierre Bourdieu died in 2002, but his status as a politically engaged academic only fully emerged in the last few years of a long and active life as a scholar and public intellectual. Although there are now many books on Bourdieu, this book stands out as being the only one that focuses on the political significance of his work and activity. This edited collection brings together an excellent list of leading authorities including Jeremy Lane, Alex Callinicos and Bridget Fowler with others, like Philippe Corcuff, Gerard Mauger and Jacques Bidet, creating a welcome cross-Channel dimension. This book is essential for students of political theory and philosophy as well as activists seeking inspiration.
