"This is not an autobiography."
Pierre Bourdieu

Pierre Bourdieu's commitment to a reflexive sociology led himineluctably to take on the final challenge of a self socio-analysisin which he recounts and analyses, more fully and intimately thanever before, his understanding of the trajectory that led him fromthe peasant world of Béarn, through sometimes painful years asa lyce boarder, as a student in 1950s Paris and as a conscript inthe Algerian War, to the pinnacle of the French intellectual andacademic world.

"This is not an autobiography," he said of this work but itreveals much of the hitherto implicit experience of his formativeyears, and gives precious insights into his relationships withJean-Paul Sartre, Raymond Aron, Michel Foucault and many others,which deepen our understanding of his unique contribution tosociology and anthropology.
