Bourdieu's analysis of class and culture errs in neglecting two important aspects
of social structure: social networks and class relations at work. He expects high-status
culture to be useful in class because it is correlated with class, but culture used
at work includes both genres related to class (used in domination) and genres unrelated
to class (used in coordination). High-status culture is correlated with class but
excluded, not used, in the competitive private sector. The most widely useful cultural
resource is cultural variety, and social network variety is a better source of cultural
variety than is class itself.
