Bourdieu’s final book, The Bachelors’ Ball, sees him return to Béarn, the region where he grew up, to examine the gender dynamics of rural France

Bourdieu’s final book, The Bachelors’ Ball, sees him return to Béarn, the region where he grew up, to examine the gender dynamics of rural France. Tied to the land through inheritance, these bachelors find themselves with little to offer the women of Béarn who, like the young Bourdieu himself, abandon the country for the city in droves.

This volume collects the celebrated sociologist Bourdieu's three treatments of the question, in 1962, 1972 and 1989. The first plunges us into fascinating details of the economics of dowries and animal husbandry, with his celebrated description of a Christmas village ball: dancing couples observed sullenly by the "bachelors" who know they will never get married. The methodological lesson of the volume as a whole is that Bourdieu only got to such a grand theoretical conclusion by beginning with obsessive observation of the most "trivial" detail.

Two observations, finally, about some cautions that may be necessary in taking Bourdieu’s work further.

Pierre Bourdieu (French: ; 1 August 1930 – 23 January 2002) was a French sociologist, anthropologist, philosopher and public intellectual.

The enforced bachelorhood of eldest sons in traditional French rural society was a subject to which Pierre Bourdieu devoted three major articles, written at widely spaced moments in his career as a sociologist and ethnographer. He brings them together in this book, with an introduction in which he presents them as stages in 'a kind of intellectual Bildungsroman' through which one can follow the development of his theory of practice.This book gives the reader sociological and anthropological insight into the interaction of occupation, social class and marriage and how these factors affect smaller communities, and provides a penetrating analysis of the disintegration of rural communities and the nature of social change.
