[...] a volume clearly focused on the specific topic of literature within Bourdieu's work is certainly timely. Speller's volume aims not only to provide an account of Bourdieu's main theories and analyses of literature, but also has the polemical aim of refuting critics who suggest that Bourdieu's view of literature, grounded as it is in an analysis of the social relations of the cultural field, is deterministic and reductive.
