Pierre Bourdieu is best known as one of the world's leading sociologists. Containing his famous addresses to the assembled media masses, this work addresses both social movement activists and the establishment itself.

In this series of trenchant essays, Pierre Bourdieu continues the urgent project begun in Acts of Resistance. Dissecting the claims of neoliberalism, Bordieu calls for an international social movement capable of forming a counterforce to the project of capitalist globalisation.


  • Bordieu once again selects the right targets and, as always, has much to say that is incisive and enlightening.
