Emile Durkheim on the Family
Emile Durkheim on the Family is intended to bring attention to this classical sociologistâ€™s work on the family. Durkheimâ€™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. Durkheimâ€™s ideas on the family appear only in scattered sources and a number of those sources have not been translated into English. Durkheimâ€™s Sociology of the family has not heretofore been presented and analyzed holistically.
