He learned the Sweet science of bruising, participating in all phases of the pugilist's strenuous preparation, from shadow-boxing drills to sparring to fighting in the Golden Gloves tournament.

In this experimental ethnography of incandescent intensity, the scholar-turned-boxer fleshes out Pierre Bourdieu's signal concept of habitus , deepening our theoretical grasp of human practice.

There are parts that are interesting, and the idea is very interesting-but the author uses about 10 words for every one he should and can't say anything directly.

Jan 16, Rick rated it did not like it. This is awful writing - pretentious and cliched. What's more, the author takes every opportunity to make himself the subject, particularly when he can reference a compliment paid to him by those who trained him, making this as much of an ego-driven work as a scholarly focus on its subject. The analysis ranges from interesting to obvious. Why not instead read Trimbur's "Come Out Swinging," a far superior and intriguing ethnography of a boxing gym; her book is much better written, with first-rate This is awful writing - pretentious and cliched.

Why not instead read Trimbur's "Come Out Swinging," a far superior and intriguing ethnography of a boxing gym; her book is much better written, with first-rate analysis, and an appropriate focus on its subject rather than the author. As for "Body and Soul" - skip it. Dec 28, Rocha rated it really liked it Shelves: antropologia.

Excellent ethnography and probably the best book I ever read about my favorite sport. Loic takes you into the world of boxing in his stunning first hand account of two years spent learning the Sweet science. Enough to reinvigorate and broaden anyone's understanding of sociology and it's potential for dealing with the insitution, the individual, the collective, and in the words of Wacquant's mentor "doxa, habitus, and various capitals.

Loic ci mette davvero "anima e corpo" nel tirare fuori un testo saggistico ma avvicente come un romanzo, una storia vera pronta per un film. Bellissime le fotografie che corredano il testo. Personalmente la scintilla che mi ha "lanciato" nel mondo della boxe.

Lettura per corso universitario di antropologia. L'ho torvato molto interessante e coinvolgente. Il mondo della boxe mi affascinava prima della lettura, ma Wacquant offre una visione partecipata e trascina il lettore con lui. Jul 10, Oliver Bateman rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites.

One of the five best "academic" books I've ever read, and quite possibly the best nonfiction book I've read in the past half-decade. An indispensable work, a masterpiece. Apr 19, Dave H rated it really liked it.

Fantastic exploration of the 'sweet science' and fair play to Wacquant for gloving up. This ethnographic study examines, on the one hand, the role a boxing gym plays in the lives of a number of residents of South Side Chicago, while also examining the mores of pugilism and the dedication required to enter the ring.

Mar 26, Alyssa rated it liked it Shelves: fys-sociology. Definitely an interesting view into the world of boxing through a sociological lens. I think that Louie relied a lot on his own experience to justify which he was writing about, which was kind of disappointing.

Although, he did supplement it with quotes from conversations with fellow boxers at the gym. Jul 29, Juliana rated it liked it Shelves: science , socialscience. Interesting look at ethnography, and at a world I know nothing about. I still have zero interest in boxing, but it's a fascinating read nonetheless. Mar 07, Robin rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction , memoirs , skimmed-for-curriculum , anthropology. Definitely not for a student audience -- very interesting, very intellectual, and very provocative.

I like experimental ethnography -- I think we could use more of it. Apr 02, Tricia rated it did not like it. I don't care for this book too much- on the other hand, i felt tough sitting on the public bus holding to my face a book about boxing.

Access options available:. On the one hand, Bourdieu wrote, those who know the most about sport tend to lack the inclination or ability to appreciate much less be critical of its broader social connections and significance; on the other hand, those who possess the requisite skills to analyze its forms and social functions generally dismiss sport as unworthy of serious scientific investigation. Scholarly research and writing on sport has progressed a great deal in the last twenty years, but it is not until now, with the appearance of Loic Wacquant's dazzling ethnographic journey into the world of an inner-city Chicago boxing gym, that I would say for certain that Bourdieu's challenge has been answered. As serious about the sweet science of boxing as Wacquant is practiced in the craft of sociology, Body and Soul not only sets a new standard for scholarly research and writing on sport. It is a virtuoso performance that could — if properly read and disseminated and emulated — put the study of sport at the center of all sociological theorizing and analysis. The book is divided into three parts, each having a distinctive purpose and style. The first and most extensive is "The Street and the Ring.
