Bourdieu is sharp and to the point. A sociologist who knows the shape of ideas. He does a great job explaining neo liberalism and what harm it does to our planet and different societies. Please take time to read this short pertinent book.

Bourdieu really brings it in with this piece of work and it's other part. A man rarely given air time in our half arsed nation, the Frenchman utilises his excellent articulate material to display the vulgarities of our brave new world...

9 of 18 people found the following review helpful By W. Jamison VINE VOICE on October 9, 2004
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Academic objectivity is a great excuse to avoid taking sides. PB presents a clear challenge to that excuse with this argument. Compare this with the argument from "Empire" and "Multitudes" (Hardt and Negri). A critique of their hypothesis runs along PB's approach and it does not seem to resolve in my mind. Both are difficult and rather abstract. I would normally retreat to narrative analysis and seek escape and avoid taking sides! PB presents the inescapable dilemma. This calls for a rereading of "Pascalian Meditations".

Short but very thought provoking as always.
