Description - The Logic of Practice by Pierre Bourdieu

Now available in paperback, this book offers a major statement of
Bourdieu's theoretical approach, illustrating it with examples from
anthropology. It will consolidate his reputation as one of the most
original and exciting theorists in the social sciences today.
Drawing on his own field work as well as a wide range of
ethnographic and anthropological texts, Bourdieu unfolds a
theoretical perspective which does justice to the practical logic
of everyday action as well as the objective structures within which
such action takes place. A thorough understanding of practice
requires the anthropologist to move beyond objectivism and
subjectivism and to grasp, by means of the concept of `habitus',
the interplay of structures and practices in the ongoing conduct of
everyday life.
