Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this provocative book, Strenski (religious studies, Univ. of California, Riverside) attacks the widely held view that there is anything "essentially" Jewish in the works of noted French sociologist Emile Durkheim (1858-1917). Strenski argues that Durkheim's sociology (particularly that of religion), rather than having any inherent Jewish content, developed within the context of Jewish intellectual life in the French Third Republic. In one of the most interesting chapters, "Sylvain Levi: Mauss's Second Uncle," Strenski argues that Durkheim's analysis of ritual was heavily influenced by the universalist scholarship of Levi (1863-1935) and his studies of the religions of India. A specialized, scholarly work appropriate for Jewish studies collections and for academic libraries.?Mark Weber, Kent State Univ. Lib., Ohio
