Product Description


Reveals new features in the analysis of social classes and political power. Arising probably from the intense interest in cultural dominance and cultural revolution that emerged in radical movements... these investigations connect cultural phenomena firmly within the structural characteristics of a society, and begin to show how a culture produced by this structure in turn helps to maintain it. (Tom Bottomore)

The most striking successes of their work are their redefinitions of the very character of educational research... There is an especially brilliant discussion of the relations between a traditional literary culture and selection for arts courses. 
(Raymond Williams)

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic way to frame an issue we grapple with today 15 May 2013
By A dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The authors, especially Pierre Bourdieu, address issues that were relevant probably as long the history of public schooling. Apparently, it's next to impossible to deliver public education without also perpetuating the status quo. That sounds Marxist but there's something in this book for everybody.

What we face now is a long-term education reform movement to achieve student growth in large part through accountability. On the surface it seems fine yet socio-economic factors are non-random.

Another way of looking at the problem of school reform is that we're still stuck with industrial-era public schools. Those schools were designed to efficiently produce in scale the kinds of people needed for factory work and clerical work (for the most part - there are exceptions but those exceptions tend to have a lot to do with socio-economic status).

Now we apparently need a different type(s) of worker(s). Yet again though, despite attempts to the contrary we're likely to reproduce the status quo in the sense that Boudieu conveys. For this reason I think the book continues to be relevant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Research 18 Jan. 2013
By P. Lanzon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for research purposes. I found Bourdieu's theory to be quite relevant to the social issues we are facing in American society today. If you are researching the family as a social system from a more sociological perspective, this book will be a great addition to your knowledge base.
