Critiques of conflict theory, notably from radical theorists like Giroux, are also examined. However, I argue that radical theorists have tended to overstate the determinism of certain conflict accounts, particularly, Bourdieu's. They have also failed to provide, as yet, a viable critical and practical alternative. This is admittedly a difficult chapter dealing, as it does, with abstract sociological theories but it is worth persevering Page 8 with, particularly as my intention in this book is to break down the theory/practice divide.
