About the Author
Emile Durkheim (1858-1917) was a French sociologist who formally established the academic discipline and, with Karl Marx and Max Weber, is commonly cited as the principal architect of modern social science. Steve Lukes is a professor of sociology at New York University. An emeritus Fellow of the British Academy and an editor of the European Journal of Sociology, he is the author of Emile Durkheim: His Life and Work and, most recently, Moral Relativism.
"If one had to choose one foundational text in sociology--this has to be it. Its critique of market society as well as its radical treatment of capitalism's diseases are even more pertinent today than they were a century ago."--Michael Burawoy "Department of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley "
