"This valuable source for a systematic and comprehensive understanding of Durkheim's ideas on the family constitutes a major addition to the literature on the family, social theory, women's studies, and family law. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above." -CHOICE 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. The purpose of Lamanna's book is to bring together Durkheim's ideas on the family from diverse sources and to present his family sociology systematically and comprehensively. Quotations from Durkheim's writing or speaking enrich the analysis. Durkheim's work on the family is situated in its historical context and comparisons are drawn to present-day sociology of the family is situated in its historical context and comparisons are drawn to present-day sociology of the family and family issues. Chapter topics include: Durkheim's life and times His evolutionary theory of the family Methodologies for studying the family The changing relationship of kin Conjugal family and the state The interior of the family Family policy Gender Sexuality An examination of Durkheim's work on the family reveals its close connections to his wee-known books and theories. Emile Durkheim on the Family should interest audiences in sociology of the family, social theory, family science, European intellectual history women's studies, legal history, and those generally interested in family studies and / or nineteenth and early twentieth century Europe.

SOCIOLOGY: DISCOVERING SOCIETY, SECOND EDITION provides comprehensive coverage of sociology in an affordable, paperback format. With research studies in every chapter and boxes that portray sociologists at work, it will especially appeal to sociology professors who value a quantitative, research-methodology-oriented approach. Instead of presenting every possible theory for each issue, Stockard's streamlined approach pulls in theories only when they appropriately relate to the issue at hand. This integrated approach produces a text that reads more smoothly than the overly-encyclopedic, heavily-interrupted narratives of other texts.
