There would be no need for sociology if everyone understood the social frameworks within which we operate. That we do have a connection to the larger picture is largely thanks to the pioneering thinker Émile Durkheim. He recognized that, if anything can explain how we as individuals relate to society, then it is suicide: Why does it happen? What goes wrong? Why is it more common in some places than others? In seeking answers to these questions, Durkheim wrote a work that has fascinated, challenged and informed its readers for over a hundred years. Far-sighted and trail-blazing in its conclusions, Suicide makes an immense contribution to our understanding to what must surely be one of the least understandable of acts. A brilliant study, it is regarded as one of the most important books Durkheim ever wrote.

About the Author:

Émile Durkheim (1858 - 1917). One of the founding fathers of modern sociology.

Review:

' - Suicide is one of the great classics of sociology. Although it is now more than a century old, it remains the most significant work on suicide ever produced.'

'Durkheim's great books are dedicated to the proposition that society transcends the individual: that our beliefs, values, dispositions and desires are often products of social forces and structures we poorly understand.' - Financial Times

'One of the acutest and most brilliant sociologists.' - Bronislaw Malinowski
