'Thoroughly researched and well documented, and it should do much to renew interest in Durkheim as a cogent if imperfect observer of the human condition' - "Choice". 'Provides an insightful discussion of the current theoretical dilemmas confronting critical social theories...Carefully documented, thoroughly original, and lucidly written. It is just the kind of 'deconstruction' of a classic social thinker needed to determine that thinker's relevance today' - "Social Forces". 'A long-awaited book' - Ruth A. Wallace, author of "Feminism and Sociological Theory". 'Makes the topic of Durkheim's theorizing in relation to women central to the vital question of the relationship of capitalism and of liberal social thought to patriarchy. Lehmann's work raises this issue in a clear and perspicacious way' - Roslyn W. Bologh, author of "Love or Greatness: Max Weber and Masculine Thinking - A Feminist Inquiry".'An important contribution to theoretical sociology and feminism' - R.A. Sydie, author of "Natural Women, Cultured Men: A Feminist Perspective on Sociological Theory". "Durkheim and Women" is the first book-length work to present a feminist analysis of the theoretical writings of Emile Durkheim. Through a close textual reading of Durkheim's widely scattered statements about women, Jennifer M. Lehmann reconstructs a coherent Durkheimian theory of women. She places Durkheim squarely in the swirling modernist controversies of his time and the equally bedeviling postmodernist controversies of ours. Jennifer M. Lehmann is an associate professor of sociology at the University of Nebraska and editor of "Current Perspectives in Social Theory".
