This book reflects an encounter between Indian and French scholars, centred around and concerned with the work of Pierre Bourdieu. A detailed Introduction by the editors outlines the understanding of Bourdieu`s work in a comparative perspective. It considers the social and intellectual context in which his work was produced-the field of sociology in France in the second half of the 20th century; and a specific milieu in which it was being received-the field of social sciences in India since the 1980s. This book should interest those in sociology, history, anthropology, theory, structuralism, philosophy, and fiction, apart from the general reader.
