Subject: Bourdieu and Mauss

Hello everybody,
my name is Ulle and I am presently working on the aspect of incorporation in
Bourdieus concept of habitus. It seems to me that  Bourdieu is drawing - at
least in part - on "Techniques of the Body" by Marcel Mauss. But alas, I
havent't found a direct reference yet.
So this is my question to you: Does anyone know of a text in which Bourdieu
himself directly refers to Mauss and the Techniques of the Body? Or do you
know of texts which investigate the link between Bourdieu and Mauss in general?
And another question: Do you know of others who deal with the aspect of
incorporation in Bourdieus concept of habitus and can you give me any
