Yet for three years he immersed himself among local fighters, amateur and professional.

He learned the Sweet science of bruising, participating in all phases of the pugilists 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 dissects the making of prizefighters and supplies a model for a carnal sociology capable of capturing the taste and ache of action. Body and Soul marries the analytic rigor of the sociologist with the stylistic grace of the novelist to offer a compelling portrait of a bodily craft and of life and labor in the black American ghetto at centurys end, but also a revealing tale of self transformation and social transcendence.

And, by fleshing out Pierre Bourdieus signal concept of habitus, it deepens our theoretical grasp of human practice.
