Number of pages: 288
Emile Durkheim on the Family is intended to bring attention to this classical sociologist′s work on the family. Durkheim′s writings in this area are little known, but the family was nevertheless one of his primary interests, the subject of an intended book that was never written. Durkheim′s ideas on the family appear only in scattered sources and a number of those sources have not been translated into English. Durkheim′s Sociology of the family has not heretofore been presented and analyzed holistically.
