Second hand books on Sociology
Distant Suffering: Morality, Media And Politics -by- Luc Boltanski -translated-
Graham Burchell (1999). ISBN 0521659531. The author examines the moral and political implications for a spectator of the
distant suffering of others as presented through the media; e.g. what are the morally acceptable responses to the sight
of suffering on television, when the viewer cannot act directly to affect the circumstances in which the suffering takes
place. Boltanski argues that spectators can actively involve themselves and others by talking about what they have seen
and how they were affected by it, and examines three rhetorical 'topics' available for the expression of spectator's response
to suffering. Used second hand paperback book. 246 pages. (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1999) Light scuffing on

Understanding Bourdieu -by- Jim Webb, Tony Schirato and Geoff Danaher. ISBN 1865083631. Cultural
Studies. Pierre Bourdieu examines how people conduct their lives in relation to one another and to major social institutions;
he argues that culture and education are not simply minor influences, but as important as economics in determining
differences between groups of people; Bourdieu has tested these arguments in detailed fieldwork. This book offers a
comprehensive introduction to Bourdieu's work; it is essential reading for anyone tackling him for the first time.
