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.

"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."
..".a significant contribution to Durkheim studies. The author correctly identifies the lacuna in Durkheim studies with regard to his remarks on family and has done a commendable job in bringing together the scattered references and discussions of the topic in Durkheim's work."--Rosalind Sydie
