Publisher Comments:

"Karen Fields has given us a splendid new translation of the greatest work of sociology ever written, one we will not be embarrassed to assign to our students. In addition she has written a brilliant and profound introduction. The publication of this translation is an occasion for general celebration, for a veritable 'collective effervescence.' andlt;BRandgt; — andlt;Bandgt;Robert N. Bellahandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;/Iandgt;Co-author of andlt;Iandgt;Habits of the Heart,andlt;/Iandgt; and editor of andlt;Iandgt;Emile Durkheim on Morality and Societyandlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; "This superb new translation finally allows non-French speaking American readers fully to appreciate Durkheim's genius. It is a labor of love for which all scholars must be grateful." andlt;BRandgt; --Lewis A. Coser
