LOIC WACQUANT BODY AND SOUL PDF

Wacquant , Professor Loic Wacquant. When French sociologist Lo c Wacquant signed up at a boxing gym in a black neighborhood of Chicago's South Side, he had never contemplated getting close to a ring, let alone climbing into it.

In this experimental ethnography of incandescent intensity, the scholar-turned-boxer fleshes out Pierre Bourdieu's signal concept of habitus, deepening our theoretical grasp of human practice.
