First published in 1979, the book is at once a vast ethnography of contemporary France and a dissection of the bourgeois mind.

At the time of his death in January 2002, Pierre Bourdieu was perhaps the most prominent sociologist in the world (see Calhoun and Wacquant 2002). As the author of numerous classic works, he had become a necessary reference point in various “specialty” areas throughout the discipline (including education, culture, “theory,” and the sociology of knowledge); he had also achieved.

Qualities such as taste and distinction are of.
Bourdieu outlines some very interesting concepts and analyzes them in detail, concepts that I've used time and time again for literary analysis.

Once I understood his conception of cultural capital, I began to see the United States through his prism: a society with social class distinctions lurking everywhere in social life, but which American ideology refused to acknowledge.
