Overview

Originally published in 1893, Emile Durkheim’s groundbreaking work remains one of the cornerstone texts of the sociological canon—now updated with a new introduction and improved translation by leading scholar Steve Lukes.

In 1893, a young doctoral student was to publish an entirely original work on the nature of labor and production as they were being shaped by the industrial revolution. Emile Durkheim’s The Division of Labor in Society studies the nature of social solidarity and explores the ties that bind one person to the next in order to hold society together.

This revised and updated second edition fluently conveys original arguments for contemporary readers. Leading Durkheim scholar Steve Lukes’s new introduction builds upon Lewis Coser’s original—which places the work in its intellectual and historical context and pinpoints its central ideas and arguments—by focusing on the text’s significance for how we ought to think sociologically about some central problems that face us today.

The Division of Labor in Society is an essential resource for students and scholars hoping to deepen their understanding of one of the pioneering voices in modern sociology and twentieth-century social thought.

    Classic

    Durkheim's Division of Labor is a must have for any serious student of sociology. A classic that builds a theoretical perspective relevant even today.
