I am doing a combined social science degree, A lot of it involves Emile Durkheim, I found this book very helpful and am able to refer to it again and again. It was in good condition and promptly delivered. Thank you.

Lives up to expectations 8 Dec. 2008
By Daniel Douglas - Published on
Format: Paperback
Durkheim is probably one of the few people who should be allowed to call his book 'The Rules' for Sociology and get away with it. Durkheim's positivism, though I can't agree at every moment, does much to inform the aspiring social scientist about the objects of his/her pursuit. The translation from the French was effective and Luke's introduction is a good frame of reference for both the author as a whole and the specific piece. If you want to understand one of the driving forces behind sociology as it is done today, this is a good point of departure.

Format: Paperback
The book fell apart the first time I used it. Almost every page has fallen out already. I am very disappointed. I needed this book for class.
