Jonathan takes some time to discuss his research interests below.
Understanding Suicide: A Sociological Autopsy is published by Palgrave Macmillan.
Professor Anthony Giddens, former Director of LSE, has said this about the book:
‘This work is a major contribution to the study of suicide, still one of the core topics in sociology. Introducing a novel methodology and an innovative approach to suicide motivation, it will become a landmark study in the field’.
