This handy textbook provides a collection of the key passages from Durkheim's major works and successfully encapsulates the core of his sociology." With this text, Kenneth Thompson has effectively filled a gap that previously existed in the literature available on Durkheim, by providing an outstanding collection of modern and reliable translations. Offering both in-depth coverage and useful reference, this text provides an indispensable aid to those seeking to gain access to Durkheim's writings.
