Summary

Hailed by the New York Times as "illuminating...vivid and clearheaded," Pierre Bourdieu's "acid appraisal [of television] will provide shudders of recognition for American readers" (Publishers Weekly).

France's leading sociologists shows how, far from reflecting the tastes of the majority, television, particularly television journalism, imposes ever-lower levels of political and social discourse on us all.

Quickly selling out its first hardcover edition, On Television has provoked widespread comment among journalists, academics, and television viewers. Katha Pollitt wrote, "anyone seriously interested in journalism must read this book," and Todd Gitlin called it "indispensable." Pierre Bourdieu is a professor of sociology at the Collège de France and the director of studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, in Paris. His most recent book is Acts of Resistance.
