Susen, Simon and Turner, B.S. (2011) Introduction: preliminary reflections on the legacy of Pierre Bourdieu. In: Susen, Simon and Turner, B.S. (eds.) The Legacy of Pierre Bourdieu: Critical Essays. Key Issues in Modern Sociology. London, UK: Anthem Press, xiii-xxix. ISBN 9780857287687.
Book synopsis: Pierre Bourdieu is widely regarded as one of the most influential sociologists of his generation, and yet the reception of his work in different cultural contexts and academic disciplines has been varied and uneven. This volume maps out the legacy of Pierre Bourdieu in contemporary social and political thought from the standpoint of classical European sociology and from the broader perspective of transatlantic social science. It brings together contributions from prominent scholars in the field, providing a range of perspectives on the continuing relevance of Bourdieu’s oeuvre to substantive problems in social and political analysis.
