about this item

This book critically examines Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of the state, outlining its arguments and assessing its theoretical and empirical value. Pierre Bourdieu is one of the foremost and most frequently cited sociologists in the Western world. Although the state began to play a more central role in much of his later thinking, Bourdieu never provided a unified theory of the state in his work; although the recent publication of On the State (2014) attempts to fill the gaps.This book attempts to outline and critically reflect upon Bourdieu’s theory of the state by examining it in terms of a political worldview and situating it intellectually relation to both the classical theories of the state of Marx, Weber and Durkheim, and the modern approaches to the state of Elias, Tilly and Corrigan and Sayer.
