This book provides a powerful new theoretical framework for understanding cross-national cultural differences. Focusing on France and America, it analyses how the people of these two different cultures mobilise national 'repertoires of evaluation' to make judgements about politics, economics, morals and aesthetics. The analysis draws on eight case studies by eleven French and American researchers who have worked together over a number of years to develop systematic comparisons between these countries. The topics are wide-ranging, comparing how individuals use the cultural tools at their disposal to answer questions such as: Are races equal ? What constitutes sexual harassment? What is the value of contemporary art? Should journalists be neutral? How can the defense of the environment be reconciled with economic imperatives? Moving beyond simplistic essentialist models of national character, this comparative approach offers important insights that will interest not only sociologists but also political scientists and anthropologists.

This is the sequel to the successful "Pierre Bourdieu" (4 Vols) edited by Derek Robbins in 2000. Bourdieu died in 2002 and the new set extends the critical appreciation of his achievement and considers responses to his work that have occurred since his death. The four volumes are divided into seven sections that include: Globalization; Interviews; Methodology and Philosophy of Social Science; Concepts Revisited; Some examples of the socio-political engagement of the intellectual; Critiques; and, Reviews and Obituaries. The sheer scale of Bourdieu's achievements is slowly being recognized. His work in developing relational sociology, criticizing distributive injustice and exposing how power operates amounts to one of the first-rank of major, durable contributions in post-war Sociology.Robbins is one of the best informed and stimulating critical interpreters of Bourdieu's thought. He has a range of knowledge to enable illuminating connections to be made with philosophy, sociology, culture and politics. This is the perfect complement to "Pierre Bourdieu (2000)" and enables readers to revitalize their understanding of this prominent social thinker. Derek Robbins is Professor of International Social Theory, University of East London.

Paris has always fascinated and welcomed writers. Throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century, writers of American, Caribbean, and African descent were no exception. Paris, Capital of the Black Atlantic considers the travels made to Paris-whether literally or imaginatively-by black writers. These collected essays explore the transatlantic circulation of ideas, texts, and objects to which such travels to Paris contributed. Editors Jeremy Braddock and Jonathan P. Eburne expand upon an acclaimed special issue of the journal Modern Fiction Studies with four new essays and a revised introduction. Beginning with W. E. B. Du Bois's trip to Paris in 1900 and ending with the contemporary state of diasporic letters in the French capital, this collection embraces theoretical close readings, materialist intellectual studies of networks, comparative essays, and writings at the intersection of literary and visual studies. Paris, Capital of the Black Atlantic is unique both in its focus on literary fiction as a formal and sociological category and in the range of examples it brings to bear on the question of Paris as an imaginary capital of diasporic consciousness.

This book will become the standard work on the life and thought of Emile Durkheim, one of the great founding fathers of sociology. Durkheim remains one of the most widely read thinkers in the social sciences and every student of sociology, anthropology and related subjects must study his now-classic books. He brought about a revolution in the social sciences: the defence of the autonomy of sociology as a science, the systematic elaboration of rules and methods for studying the social, the condemnation of racial theories, the critique of Eurocentrism and the rehabilitation of the humanity of 'the primitive'. He defended the dignity of the individual, the freedom of the press, democratic institutions and the essential liberal values of tolerance and pluralism. At the same time he was critical of laisser-faire economics and he defended the values of solidarity and community life. In many ways, Durkheim's rich intellectual heritage has become part of the self-understanding of our time. Despite his enormous influence, the last major biography of Durkheim appeared more than 30 years ago. Since then, the opening up of archives and the discovery of manuscripts, correspondence with friends and close collaborators, administrative reports and notes taken by students have all provided a wealth of new material about his life and work. Meticulously documented, Marcel Fournier's new biography sheds fresh light on Durkheim's personality and character, his relationship with Judaism, his family life, his relations with friends and collaborators, his political and administrative responsibilities and his political views. This book will be indispensable to students and scholars throughout the social sciences and will appeal to a wide readership interested in knowing more about the life and work of one of the most original and influential thinkers of the twentieth century.

This volume, a collection of essays by a number of high-profile personalities working in philosophy, literature, sociology, cinema, theatre, journalism and politics, covers a number of crucial developments in the field of French feminisms that have made a reassessment necessary. "Beyond French Feminisms" proposes to answer the question: what is new in French feminism at the beginning of the 21st century? The essays reflect the shift from the theoretical and philosophical approaches that characterized feminism in the 1980s to the more social and political questions of 2001. Topics include: the "parit?" and PACS debates, the France USA dialogue, the "multicultural" issues and the new trends in literature and film by women.
