      1. An influential book in which Bourdieu outlines his theory of the cultural field, where culture is considered in relation to the social and economic conditions of its production and consumption. It became an important reference in the 1990s discussions about the expanding field of culture and art in the expanded sense. See in particular part 1, which outlines the theory and considers the commodity dimensions of culture.
