16 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It then examines the meanings and functions of these concepts in the work of other authors within the group of the Annee sociologique up until the beginning of World War II. Finally; the Durkheimian legacy in its wider aspects is assessed, with particular reference to the importance of the Durkheimian categories in understanding and conceptualizing contemporary forms of evil and suffering."--Jacket

Yet his scarcely mentioned text of 176 pages (Books I and II), which was privately printed in 1909, can be seen as some of his most important work. His argument that much of prayer is a social act will be of great interest to anthropologists, sociologists and theologians. This is the first English translation to be published It is preceded by a general introduction by W. S. F. Pickering and finally a commentary on Mauss's use of ethnographic material."--BOOK JACKET
