  • Durkheim and the Jews of Franceby Ivan Strenski

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 22.50

    Ivan Strenski debunks the common notion that there is anything "essentially" Jewish in Durkheim's work. Seeking the Durkheim inside the real world of Jews in France rather than the imagined Jewishness inside Durkheim himself, Strenski adopts a Durkheimian approach to understanding Durkheim's thought. In so doing he shows for the first time that Durkheim's... more...

  • Why Politics Can't Be Freed From Religionby Ivan Strenski

    Wiley 2010; US$ 105.95

  • Understanding Theories of Religionby Ivan Strenski

    Wiley 2015; US$ 44.95

    Finding (or twisting) a red thread, linking pre-modern, modern, and, with this revised second edition, also post-modern thinking and theories of religion, is no easy task. Especially, if you also aim at a more nuanced understanding, by way of historicizing and contextualizing thinkers and theories. It takes comprehensive knowledge as well as a personal... more...
