Body & Soul

body and soul notebooks of an apprentice boxer

A Frenchman in Chicago sets out to learn about the black ghetto but not through detached observation: he joins the local gym and labors to become a boxer for whom, as for his buddies, 'fighting is my life, my woman, my love'. He is a co-founder and editor of the interdisciplinary journal Ethnography. 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. When French sociologist Loïc Wacquant signed up at a boxing gym in a black neighborhood of Chicago's South Side, he had never contemplated getting close to a ring, let alone climbing into it. By bringing developments in welfare and criminal justice into a single analytic framework attentive to both the instrumental and communicative moments of public policy, Punishing the Poor shows that the prison is not a mere technical implement for law enforcement but a core political institution.

Yet for three years he immersed himself among local fighters, amateur and professional. He finds that a network of Reagan-era conservative think tanks led by the Manhattan Institute forged them as weapons in their crusade to dismantle the welfare state and, in effect, to criminalize poverty. 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. I think that Louie relied a lot on his own experience to justify which he was writing about, which was kind of disappointing. Yet for three years he immersed himself among local fighters, amateur and professional. Withrespect and affection for those who mentored him, he takes us into a lifeworldthat offers to some an alternative to the deadly streets of urban wastelands.
