Books Info:

Bourdieu, Habitus and Social Research free pdf This collection brings together for the first time a set of researchers whose research methodologies centre on Bourdieu's concept of habitus. Full of insight and innovation, the book is an essential read for anyone wanting to know more about approaches to social theory and its application in research. One of its core objectives is to assist social researchers in their capacity to harness the potential of habitus as a methodological tool, thereby helping to bridge the often troublesome dichotomy between theory and method in the social sciences. It also provides a useful and practical resource on how effectively to apply the concept of habitus to scholarship/research, and can easily be used as a reference book in postgraduate programmes.
