Suicide (French: Le Suicide) was one of the groundbreaking books in the field of sociology. Written by French sociologist Émile Durkheim and published in 1897 it was ostensibly a case study of suicide, a publication unique for its time which provided an example of what the sociological monograph should look like. Some argue that it is not a case study and that this is what makes it unique among other scholarly work on the same subject.
Famous quotes containing the word suicide:
“They can rule the world while they can persuade us
our pain belongs in some order.
Is death by famine worse than death by suicide,
than a life of famine and suicide ... ?”
—Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
