Description

This highly acclaimed work, in which Pierre Bourdieu turns hisattention to the academic world and offers a brilliant analysis ofmodern intellectual culture, is now available in paperback. Theacademy is shown to be not just a realm of dialogue and debate, butalso a sphere of power in which reputations and careers are made,defended and destroyed. Bourdieu constructs a map of the intellectual field in Franceand analyzes the forms of capital power, the lines of conflict andthe patterns of change which characterize the system of highereducation in France today.
