In the previous chapter, we identified three questions that guide our inquiries. To recap, these concern, first, the extent to which cultural capital informs the organisation of social divisions in contemporary Britain; second, how far the operations of cultural capital in different parts of the cultural field are governed by similar principles; and, third, how cultural capital operates to the advantage of middle-class groups and to the disadvantage of other groups, taking account of its intersections with class, age, gender and ethnicity.
