The division of labor in society by Émile Durkheim( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this momentous challenge to the economic theories of Adam Smith and Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim presents a visionary reconception of the social structures for production and allocation that are the cornerstones of capitalism. He asks how individuality can be retained within the capitalist system. He argues that class conflict is not inherent in a capitalistic society as Marx contended, but that the unfettered growth of state power would lead to the extinction of individuality. He suggests that only in a free society that promotes voluntary bonds between its members can individuality prosper
The gift : forms and functions of exchange in archaic societies by Marcel Mauss( Book )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its first publication in English in 1954, Marcel Mauss's Essai sur le Don has been acclaimed as a classic among anthropology texts. A brilliant example of the comparative method, it presents the first systematic study of the custom -- widespread in primitive societies from ancient Rome to present-day Melanesia -- of exchanging gifts." "The gift is a perfect example of what Mauss calls a total social phenomenon, since it involves legal, economic, moral, religious, aesthetic, and other dimensions. He sees the gift exchange as related to individuals and groups as much as to the objects themselves, and his analysis calls into question the social conventions and economic systems that had been taken for granted for so many years." "In a modern translation, introduced by the distinguished anthropologist Mary Douglas, The Gift is essential reading for students of social anthropology and sociology. Book jacket."--Jacket

Politics, society and Christianity in Vichy France by W. D Halls( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first work in English or French to deal comprehensively with the attitudes and activities of Christians, both Catholic and Protestant, in France during the Vichy regime and under the German yoke. The author shows how Christians reacted to Marshal Petain and the Laval government, as well as to the Allies, the Germans, the Resistance and the Vatican. The trauma of the treatment of the Jews, which eventually acted upon the Church as a catalyst, is assessed in detail since it represented a turning-point in Christian attitudes. This examination of one of history's darkest periods provides a wealth of new material on matters hotly debated at the Liberation: the regime's slide into near-fascism; the persecution of the Jews; the attempted regimentation of youth and trade unions; resistance to or collaboration with the enemy; and the paramountcy of conscience for Christians
