When it was originally published, The Division of Labor in Society was an entirely original work on the nature of labor and production as they were being shaped by the industrial revolution. Emile Durkheimâs seminal work studies the nature of social solidarity and explores the ties that bind one person to the next in order to hold society together.
This revised and updated second edition fluently conveys Durkheimâs arguments for contemporary readers. Leading Durkheim scholar Steve Lukesâs new introduction builds upon Lewis Coserâs originalâwhich places the work in its intellectual and historical context and pinpoints its central ideas and arguments. Lukes explains the textâs continued significance as a tool to think about and deal with problems that face us today. The original translation has been revised and reworked in order to make Durkheimâs arguments clearer and easier to read.
The Division of Labor in Society is an essential resource for students and scholars hoping to deepen their understanding of one of the pioneering voices in modern sociology and twentieth-century social thought.
