Pierre Bourdieu, one of the most influential critical social theorists of the second half of the twentieth century, once described sociology as "a combat sport." This comprehensive collection of his writings on politics and social science from the Algerian War of Independence in the early 1960s to the last text he published before his death bears out that this vision, far from being the product of a "turn" in the 1990s, was enduring throughout his life.
