Description:

The following paper is an analytical review of the text, Suicide: A Study in Sociology. The review highlights the ambitiousness of Durkheim's monograph and how he was breaking new ground by applying statistics to the study of suicide commission in late-nineteenth century Europe. However, the text suffers because Durkheim is unable to draw any meaningful or rock-solid conclusions from the data he collects because he simply lacks the statistical sophistication to do so.

Analytical Review of the Book, Suicide: A Study in Sociology The following paper is an analytical review of the text, Suicide: A Study in Sociology.
