The Division of Labour in Society is a book by Emile Durkheim, a French sociologist and one of the founding fathers of sociology. The book was first published in French in 1893 and translated into English by W.D. Halls in 1984, with an introduction by Lewis Coser. The book is considered a classic work of social theory and one of Durkheim’s most influential contributions to the field. The book explores the question of how social order is maintained in modern societies, where the division of labour is highly complex and specialized. Durkheim argues that there are two types of social solidarity that bind people together: mechanical solidarity, based on shared values and beliefs, and organic solidarity, based on interdependence and cooperation. He also examines the causes and consequences of the division of labour, such as the emergence of individualism, anomie, crime, and social conflict. The book is divided into four parts, each containing several chapters that address different aspects of the main theme. The book is intended for students and scholars of sociology, social theory, and history.
