Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Even for the psychoanalytically oriented reader this book holds more than merely historical interest. One cannot help being impressed by the wealth of knowledge and the perspicacity revealed in it, and there have certainly been few more compact presentations of socio-psychological problems…Psychoanalysts no less than sociologists will find the study of Durkheim’s book instructive and rewarding. The editor and translators are to be commended for making the work available in an excellent and remarkably lucid translation.” —Psychoanalytic Quarterly

"Durkheim's contribution was a very considerable one...No investigation of the subject can disregard his views."—American Journal of Psychiatry
