Editorial Reviews

Review

A seminal work that is strongly recommended reading.

(The Midwest Book Review)

Essential reading for those who are interested in the link between colonial politics and ethnographic practices.

(Muriam Haleh Davis Arab Studies Journal)

With its translation of lesser-known texts, thoughtful juxtaposition of texts and images, and, above all, beautiful presentation of the photographs, this book provides a fascinating glimps into the working process and intellectual origins of the most important scholars of the twentieth century.

(H-France Review)

Picturing Algeria juxtaposes Bourdieu's photographs with excerpts from his later writings, enabling the reader/viewer to grasp the destruction left in the wake of colonial violence.

(Olivia Harrison The Los Angeles Review of Books)

Picturing Algeria is worth its price for the 130 images alone... An invaluable contribution to scholarship. The photographs offer a rare glimpse into an unfamiliar aspect of Bourdieu's work in Algeria, displaying the literal lenses through which he framed his research sites.

(Journal of Historical Geography)

About the Author

Pierre Bourdieu (1930–2002) is widely regarded as one of the most important French intellectuals of the twentieth century. He served as chair of sociology at the College de France and authored numerous seminal works, including The Social Structures of the Economy; The Weight of the World: Social Suffering in Contemporary Society; The State Nobility: Elite Schools in the Field of Power; Practical Reason: On the Theory of Action; The Rules of Art: Genesis and Structure of the Literary Field; Language and Symbolic Power; and Distinction: A Social Critique of the Judgement of Taste.

Craig Calhoun is director of the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Franz Schultheis is a professor of sociology at the University of St. Gallen. He has also taught at the University of Geneva, the University of Neuchâtel, and the University of Montreal. A longtime collaborator of Pierre Bourdieu, he has been heavily involved in disseminating the sociologist's teachings throughout Germany and Europe.

Christine Frisinghelli is a curator and publisher in contemporary photography. She cofounded the journal Camera Austria International in 1980 and acted as its editor in chief until 2010. She currently heads the board of the Camera Austria association and is custodian of Pierre Bourdieu's photographic archive.
