McLemee On Bourdieu
“Pierre Bourdieu had a way of getting under one’s skin. I don’t mean his overtly polemical works — the writings against globalization and neoliberalism that appeared toward the end of his life, for example. He was at his most incisive and needling in works that were much less easy for the general public to read. Bourdieu’s sociological research kept mapping out the way power, prestige, and exclusion work in the spheres of politics, economics, and culture.” – 'Locating Bordieu', Inside Higher-Ed.
