Long recognised as a foundational figure in the development of social scientific thought, Emile Durkheim's work has been the subject of intense debate over the years. This authoritative and comprehensive collection of essays re-examines the impact of Durkheim's thought, considering the historical contexts of his work as well as evaluating his ideas in relation to current issues and controversies. Eminent authorities in the field have contributed to this up-to-date overview, giving the reader - both students and academics - a chance to engage directly with leading figures in the field about contemporary trends, ideas and dilemmas. This volume reflects the cross-disciplinary application of Durkheim's theories and will interest scholars of anthropology, political science, cultural studies and philosophy, as well as sociology. This is a landmark volume that redefines the relevance of Durkheim to the human sciences in the twenty-first century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is a collection of essays on Emile Durkheim edited by Jeffrey Alexander and Philip Smith and is one of the few anthologies to appear on Durkheim in many years. Its main aim is to examine the impact of Durkheim's writings by reconsidering the historical context of his work in the light of the recent resurgence of interest in Durkheim world wide." --Ken Morrison, Canadian Journal of Sociology Onlince
"A welcome addition to an understanding of Durkheim's accomplishments and appreciation of his influence." --Choice
