Deconstructing  Pierre Bourdieu: . Against Sociological Terrorism from the Left
About the Author

Jeannine Verd è s-Leroux, PhD, is a researcher at the (French) National Center for Sociological Research in Paris, home to Bourdieu's closest collaborators and most vehement opponents. Her earlier works have analyzed the role of the intellectual in the Communist Party, the Far Left, and the Far Right. She set out to write a short article criticizing Pierre Bourdieu's political grandstanding - but, whether you are for him or against him, he cannot be dismissed in just a few words!

French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu stands for the European form of Clinton-style big-government spending. World-famous in sociology and philosophy circles, he has been untouchable - until now. Author Verd è s-Lerroux paints a highly charged portrait, denouncing his militancy, hypocrisy, elitism and shallowness.

Witty, sharp and rigorous, the author gives ammunition against Clinton-style mumbo-jumbo. If you hate Clinton, you will love this book.
