'Written by well-known and highly respected experts in the field, this is an important collection. It is for all those interested in Bourdieu's work. The essays demonstrate how Bourdieu's concepts can be made useful in ways that complicates them at the same time as they themselves open up new research possibility.' - Ghassan Hage, Professor of Anthropology and Social Theory, University of Melbourne, Australia 'This is an engaging and thought-provoking collection that thinks "with and against" Bourdieu. The chapters here both engage with and suggest new departures from Bourdieu's own work to produce important insights and to suggest new directions for a sociology of the twenty-first century.' - Steph Lawler, Reader in Sociology, Department of Sociology, University of York, UK
