Table of contents
Diane Reay, Professor of Education, Cambridge University, UK
This book is a truly refreshing and accessible account of Bourdieu's work; it breaks with the traditional jargon filled sociological work of the past whilst still managing to discuss highly complex ideas. The authors each strike a delicate balance between discussing research, theory and personal experience. I would recommend this book to all students with an interest in inequality and Bourdieusian sociology.
Annabel Wilson, PhD Student, Cardiff University, UK
This book engages critically with the deficiencies of Bourdieu's model to provide a more robust theoretical base which accommodates for the changing dynamics of contemporary society.within Bourdieu: The Next Generation undertones of equality and transparency are evident throughout; a book which simplifies a complexus of theory into an accessible, fluid and illuminative format.
Joe McMullan, Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR), Sheffield Hallam University, UK, Sociological Research Online
The book is highly recommended for anyone working in sciences who is particularly interested in the (re)production of inequalities of different forms and contexts.
Kishor K. Poh, Jawaharial Nehru University, India, Network, British Sociological Association
